|Having a bit of a problem.|
I made passworded .doc files on my old PC using MS Word. My new PC doesn't have MS Word due to me being unable to make Office 2007 (got a free genuine copy through work) work on Windows 7.
I know the passwords, but of course without Word I can't get the password entry prompt up, and so can't open them. I downloaded Jarte as a stopgap and also have WordPad. Jarte shows nothing, WordPad shows what looks like the encrypted document - a massive jumble of characters.
I'd ideally like to open them without having to get Word, as the current version is rather expensive for what it is, and I don't foresee a free copy coming from work anytime soon.
Is there any way to do it, for someone with quite limited computing skills? Might OpenOffice provide the password prompt popup?
