    I recently found some old .doc files on my external hard drive. The problem is, the files are passworded. I know what the password is but TextEdit won't open passworded files. I don't have MS Word for Mac and don't really have the cash to buy it right now. Is there another program I could use that would let me open files with a password? Free programs would be better, otherwise - the cheaper the better!

    Thanks.
