My MS Word edition is 2002
I created a folder to save my MS Word documents in.
I had problems with my PC so I had to use PC Recovery. After using the recovery, I cannot access my Word documents that are in the folder that I saved them to.
A box comes up with : "Word cannot open document. User does not have access privileges"
However, if I create a new word document & save it to my desk top, I can open it.
*I did not delete any user accounts when using PC Recovery
*I am logged on as Administrator
*My husband has access to his files, that are NOT in my folder, with no problem.
*My receipts from paying bills online are in that file, My husband thinks he remembers encrypting it so that no hackers could get access to the information in the files,
but that was more than a year ago & he can not remember how he encrypted it.
Is there any way to undo the encryption in MS Word 2002 so we can access our important files??
