Re: HOw to decrypt a word doc

Did you try using the "Recover Text from Any File" setting? If that did not
work then the file is corrupted.

Well what you are saying is to head to the File menu then click on Open
after that a small window opensup, allowing me to choose the file I want
I can select the type of the document which I want to open on word, right?
Now when if I select any option there, Rich Text Format, Web Pages, etc
I will be only able to open that kind of document,

But the file I have is in a .doc format. I saw the properties of the file
and it was written that the file was a .doc file.and thats for sure.

So I guess doing that dosen't solves my problem, I am Damn sure about the
file that its a doc file, or in other sence you can say that there is some
text written in the file, but it is encrypted,not by password, but by
symbols. I can only see different sortta symbols like ^$-_ etc. . . I
told you that I have tried to save the file in different formats, using
As option, in the File Menu. So that may be it could solve my problem, as
I open the newly saved file, and get the text before me, but all was in

So now I guess you may tell me some other way to view the file, I shall be
VERY VERY GREATFUL to you, coz its really imp.
