And I'm sorry but can you post the doc file. I would like to try decrypting it myself.
I love challenging myself

read this article:


In either case, one thing you have to remember about encrypting and decrypting files in Windows is that you always need your encryption certificates/keys. When you turn on Encrypting [COLOR=orange !important][COLOR=orange !important]File [COLOR=orange !important]System[/COLOR][/COLOR][/COLOR]

in Windows, encryption keys are automatically created and associated with your user account.

If you reformat a computer or move the files to another computer, you first have to export the encryption keys in order to regain access to the encrypted data.
If you do not have these encryption keys, you will not be able to decrypt the data. Sadly, there is no way around it, the encryption is very strong and cannot be broken.
If you can still open the files on a computer, you want to make sure to you create a backup of the encryption keys in case the [COLOR=orange !important][COLOR=orange !important]operating [COLOR=orange !important]system[/COLOR][/COLOR][/COLOR] ever fails and you have to copy the data to an external drive.

not so since i formated it, and had no clue i even encrtped the stuff. never play with that again, also it was so easy to just delete volume of ultimate inside of win pro and then extend that volume back to my c, restarted and it was fine didnt have to boot into cd and repair boot loader, i guess since they both windows 7
