    There are softwares to open password protected MS office files .. e.g. ExcelLockSmith

    Don't know how effective they are but you might wanna try .. google for them

    ^ Doesnt matter.
    Any method that has a potential for misuse, is misused. (And hence not to be discussed on this sacrosanct place)

    Take P2P for instance.

    Now zip-up and abide by the rules.

    does not mean we can't post personal mp3s since those could be shared illegally?

    If your material is copyright or patented by someone else, then definitly not!

    If its YOUR OWN composition, your posting here is an acceptance of the fact that it can be shared.

    Otherwise use sites like youtube, soundclick etc, where you can protect the file from being shared. And LINK it here.

    Well, of course it can be used to read someone else's password protected file!

    Isn't that wrong?
