I have a client with an old Excel spreadsheet that is password protected. They have forgotten the password and are unable to open it.

I installed OpenOffice and the buttons on the spreadsheet appear to be in developer or edit mode. They have green boxes around them and do not execute. How can I execute and edit macro code? Thanks!

Now my computer has 44 viruses that SpyBot can't fix. It says it can't create a c:\windows\winit.ini file. It also says that I don't have administrative access. I'm the only one ever using this computer. Microsoft in it's infinite wisdom, has made things difficult again. I tried running as administrator from the command prompt with no success.
