I might be mistaken, but I think I remember reading somewhere on this site that experts are not allowed to give information or instruction to questions regarding the removal or getting past of any security or password. My apologies if this has been changed or I am wrong, check with an EE administrator.
Not if the question is legitimate and the reason is fully explained, I think ;-)
I'll see if it get slapped...

Elcomsoft has tools for this: Advanced Office Password recovery: http://www.elcomsoft.com/aopr.html
They are a legitimate and thrustworthy company.
