    Hi everyone. I am having a problem opening a file that I was previously able to open and edit with no problem. I am getting two errors. One basically says that the file cannot be accessed and the other basically says that it cannot access the file and that the file may be encrypted. Well, the file is encrypted. I tried to unencrypt the file but I was unsuccessful. I originally encrypted the file using Windows XP which is the operating system that I use on my computer. I fear that the file has become corrupted and cannot be recovered. I can only hope that you all can help me to recover my file. I do not have a backup of the file but I do have a printout of it so I can make it up again if I have to. Unfortunately, I'll have to readd some stuff on it that I have added to the file since the file was printed. Luckily, it is a recent printout. So, can I recover my file? If so, how? I have included screen shots of the two errors but I blacked out the file name for privacy reasons. Thanks in advance!

    Well everyone, the problem is solved. Turns out that my entire Microsoft Office 2002 suite had become corrupted somehow. I haven't scanned for viruses yet but I plan to soon so as to avoid this problem in the future. I am also making sure to do a weekly backup of all my documents from now on. Later!
