There is no free online website to remove or retrieve the forgotten password (to my knowledge). Some other websites which provide service with money are as under:-

http://passwordnow.com
http://www.decryptum.com

I have used the second website myself. It cost me 30 dollars for one file irrespective of file size. It was instantaneous. Just the time to upload the file to their server.

Caballo I have tried both of them, both have brute force, dictionary etc methods. These softwares try to match the password. Its good that ur software retrieves the password. How can i send a sample file for test purposes.

i offered to crack a file for you, but you have sent me a test file not the one that needs cracking. i am not doing this as a way of promoting the software i have. the program i use is not for commercial release and i am not allowed to let people have a copy of it. If you had sent me the original file i would have run it against my software but by sending me the test file and the request for the name of the package i can not proceed. This was a genuine offer to help you out but you have doubted my veracity. good luck with cracking the word document.
