Free Word Excel and Password Recovery Wizard

By Free Password Recovery Software Free Editors' Rating

Editors' Review

Download.com Staff Feb 27, 2009
If you've forgotten a simple password for a Word or Excel file, this free utility is a good way to recover it. Compared to full-fledged password crackers, Free Word Excel Password Wizard offers a very limited set of attacks. However, the free demos of fuller-featured programs typically let you recover passwords of only one or two characters--in other words, they're useless for any practical purpose. The developers of this program acknowledge it's only useful for short, simple passwords (for instance, English words) of up to eight characters, but it does a decent job cracking those. You can choose character sets and dictionary files, and in our tests the program discovered the password lover in a few seconds. Give it a shot before moving on to more powerful remedies.
