I wouldn't get too optimistic with a demo program.  From experience, such demo's limit the length of the passowrd they are able to recover to maybe 4 characters.

Usually they ask you for a list to work from.  The list can comprise partial passwords where portions are known, or simply characters not to include in the search.

Their full kit is $355, so I have a feeling that the Word password recovery demo will be delimited.  I suppose it is worth trying, though.

I agree with both posts above; Passware will definitely remove the password, but the demo version is hobbled and will not let you see the full password.

The only legal way would be to pay for a copy of this software.  Or try hypnosis and see if you can concentrate on and remember the password you set.

That's actually a very good idea, Zoplax :-)

"...imagine yourself in a comfortable, leather swivel chair in front of a large executive mahogany desk.  You have no pressures, no prior engagements or telephone ringing off the hook....you are about to enter your password, just as you have always done.  You will not even have to think about it, the password will just flow directly to your fingers which will move automatically to the correct keys....When you awake, the password will be vivid in your immadiate memory, and you will never forget it again.....OK then, that will be $250 please".

I've just tried an experiment to see if I could see the encrypted password using DOS EDIT.  Unfortunately not, but what I did see was all text I thought I had permanently deleted.  I was going to call my ex-boss a *!@%?, but changed my mind and deleted it.

That's just an extra bit of useless information for you, rahejaswati.  Deleted text remains as part of the document and is viewable using the EDIT command in DOS unless you disable the option from Tools > Options > "save" tab > "Allow Fast Saves".

Yeah, no objection kronostm.  I reckon my hypnosis narrative based on Zoplax's suggestion may have worked, but there's no way to be sure  :-)
