Greetings. I recently had to reinstall Windows (and Word) because of a new hard drive installation. I have copied over all my old files to my new Windows installation just fine and have reinstalled Word 2000 (I know its old, bare with me). However, one of the files was encrypted on my old hard drive (by me) and now it won't open on my new Windows install. It keeps saying acess denied. I understand that the signature would be different now because of a new install, but is there anyway to view this file now? I am using Word 2000 with all the updates. Many thanks for your time!
