Alt shift f11 to bring up the script editor. Search for password. Delete the line that says hash password. Save and you should be able to unprotect.

@l33tf0b - can I ask on the back of the Authors' Question; if the document can't be opened how can you bring up Alt+F11?  Surely that would be for documents that are read-only?

my apologies - i had assumed it was a read only , password protected file.  Are you prompted with a password when you double click the file?

Since we're not allowed to provide links - the easiest way is to google brute force password crackers for Word 2003 or w/e version you need.

EE frowns upon password cracking utilities.

Free one which I've used attempts to decrypt the password.

http://www.rixler.com/office_password_recovery_toolbox.htm
http://www.petri.co.il/recover-word-2010-password.htm has reputable vendors but you'll need to pay for it.

Best of luck.
