Opening password protected file

I have forgot password of MS Word file. Is it possible to still open it with any software etc?

use brute force but it is very very time-taking!!!!

So better try to remember the password again!!!!

Some also try dictionary attacks. Brute force may take longer time but always result in positive.

but if the password is little bit longer then it can take even a day and it is tooooooooo long..

atleast nearly impossible for me!!!!

^ Even a password of few letters (that has alphabets, numbers, signs) on Word document or PDF document can take up to two weeks. Just imagine a password of 8 or 12 or 16 characters :)

Use rainbow cracking instead of brute force or dictionary attack.

find out what kinda encryption or encoding algorithm MS word files used in storing passwords and then you can easily find websites who can decrypt/crack it for you.
