How to Open password protected documents Excel/ PDF

I have had users come to me to try to open up password protected PDF/ Excel because they forgot the password or do not have them

 Do you know of any software that can do this free or paid?

Also how does your IT Staff handle these type of requests?

I have used the following software on excel documents :

However, this is a very sensitive nature, usually we asked the user to confirm certain information in the document and once we open the docuument, compare and see if he is correct before w supply him with the document.

They said that they do not have the capabilities to do so they can remove restrictions but not remove passwords surrounding the PDF documents.
