Time ago i had dirty decrypt in my computer, and the virus encrypted many .doc and .xls files, inclused the book i'm writing.
After some months, some files magically decrypted themselves, and from that time i was able to open the files (with the new office).
I've just bought a new computer and i installed office 2003 (because i prefear it), with the microsoft's converter to read new docx in the old office.
However, while other new files (never crypted) both doc and docx correctly worked, the files that once were crypted made word stop to work everytime i added a symble.
Than, with some suspects, i opened with block notes a clean file and one of thoose that had been encrypted.
Apparently the encryption problem was solved, but i think that this may be only a trap: in fact there are several strange lines, when i open theese files with block notes.
In a normal file (never encrypted), i have always something like this:

but in the encrypted ones there are some internet addresses between much more strange symbles than normal:
<a:clrMap xmlns:a="http://schemas.openxmlformats.org/drawingml/2006/main" bg1="lt1" tx1="dk1" bg2="lt2" tx2="dk2" accent1="accent1" accent2="accent2" accent3="accent3" accent4="accent4" accent5="accent5" accent6="accent6" hlink="hlink" folHlink="folHlink"/>
I've not tryed to see where this http brings to, maybe is justa stupid thing, but, who knows? Shurely a person more expert than me can tell that this is nothing... or not, but i don't care of my personal impression.
If i understand how to add files, i'll post one of them. I changed theyr names (cmd > ren *.doc *.txt > it's faster than rename each one manually ;-) ) in .txt, to make shure that a "virus" does something...
Do you think i've to open them all with block notes, copy JUST the text (without symbols), and then paste it in a new, pute, clean document?
I've just read in google that the last thing i quoted is used fo colors... but i don't remember about colors in that fille...
