Remove password on Word Documents

By lynn.mcbee ·
I know there is a hack to remove password protected Word documents. We have individuals that have left the company and I have a legitimate reason to open these corporate documents. My question is how do I remove the password from a Word document or where can I get the information? Microsoft is not helpful on this. :-((((

The only way to do that is to get a password cracker like the one in:

Mind you that all this programs use brute force cracking, so it will take some time to recover the password.
Im assuming that your reasons are indeed legitimate to access this documents, and that they belong to you organization.
