Hi, I recently bought a new computer that has windows Vista on it. Instead of having the old microsoft word, it has microsoft works word processor. I have a password protected .doc file and I can't open it with microsoft works. Does anyone know how to open the file? I could retype it but I don't know how to password protect microsoft work documents. If anyone knows anything it'd be great. Thanks =)

Take ownership of file or folder in Vista:

Also you can download Open Office for free. It's compatible with Office applications

I could retype it but I don't know how to password protect microsoft work documents.

Works doesn't offer that function natively.
You could work around it with a 3rd party utility or create a password locked .zip from it.

I got the word viewer to work. thanks. I also found a program called folder lock. it doesn't lock the file itself, but it provides a 'locker' to store things in.
