:( I have lost the password for an important Word (Office 2000) file I created several months ago and now need to access and print. I have been going through every possibility I can think of for days now. I wondered if there might be a way removing it by editing the registry or similar as presumably the password is stored in there somewhere, although the registry is not something I have tampered with before. Any advice or suggestions would be most welcome, thanks.

A quote from one of them "to open for Word 97/2000/XP requires brute-force or dictionary attack."

Just so you know it might take a long time.
