Default MS Word doc password!! Help me out!

Hey all... i need some major help. I locked one of my english assignments so no one could read it until i had it graded... well i can't remember the password.

If anyone would like to try and hack it or tell me if its possible to get through the password or find it, let me know.

The prize for hacking it: reading my wonderful assignment about suicide.

LOL

Thanks!

If the password is quite long then it'll take ages to crack unless it's a word found in the dictionary. If you know how long the password is then you can get a brute force recovery tool. I expect this is what zimon plans to do.

i dont know how long the password is. If i knew that, then i would know the password for sure.

Zimon - i will send it to you when i get home later on.


Thanks! This really sucks... i need this paper!

EDIT: I tried bute force myself, but didn't work. I'm not sure i set it up right though... i was just rushing through to try and get it. I used to be able to do this stuff with no problem, but i dont have the time at home or the knowledge anymore.
