Few work-related situations are as scary and annoying as having to deal with an important Office file that can no longer be used because you've lost or forgotten the password that was supposed to protect it against unauthorized usage. The good news is that there are still last resort solutions to recover the lost password and eventually get access once again to that precious yet pesky Office file. Advanced Office Password Recovery is one of those last resort solutions. It enables you to recover the lost passwords for Office files of various types, like Word documents, Excel spreadsheets, PowerPoint presentations, Publisher or Money projects, Outlook and Access data files, or even OpenOffice files of various kinds. Even Vision and OneNote files are supported. This powerful tool actually supports files created with any version of Microsoft Office applications, from 2.0 to 2016, as well as OpenOffice and Apple iWork documents. Last but not least, it can reset MS Internet Explorer Content Advisor passwords and open any password-protected VBA project by exploiting a backdoor.
Advanced Office Password Recovery is in fact a password cracker that uses various attack methods to retrieve the passwords for your files. Among these methods, the acknowledged brute force attacks, dictionary-based attacks, and mixed ones, are also supported. Though the recovery speed is still largely influenced by the strength of the assigned password that now has to be cracked, I'd say Advanced Office Password Recovery is one of the fastest password recovery tools, as in the case of short passwords, it managed to retrieve them using brute force in just a few minutes.
To conclude, Advanced Office Password Recovery is clearly worth a try when you're dealing with Office files that can no longer be opened and used because their passwords are lost. It's an easy-to-use tool that comes with good password recovery speed and nice additional features like the support for numerous different attack methods.
