Do you want to unlock encrypted Word files? This article would like to describe how to use CrackPDF Word Password Recovery to accomplish it on Windows platforms.
CrackPDF Word Password Recovery is a powerful Windows utility which allows you to unlock password protected Microsoft Word 2010/2007/2003/2000/1997 files in three different methods: dictionary attack, brute-force with mask attack and brute-force with mask attack (trying all combinations).
The dictionary attack method will try all the passwords in the built-in or self-added dictionary, which offers a smarter access to unlock the encrypted Word files.
