You cant open Word 2007 docs in Wordpad.

There will be no way to read an encrypted file without the encryption key, Why would someone send you an encrypted file without the key ?.

Install Word 2007 on your PC
or
Install Open Office on your PC
or
Get the sender(s) of the documents to resend you the files in .doc format.

You just need word 2007 viewer:

Download & install this, then you can open your document files you got sent via email!

Either this or OpenOffice ([url]www.openoffice.org[/url]). It's free and will let you open word documents.

Does not have to be 2007.

If it was a 2007 file the extension would be .docx
