I can't figure out how to unlock a locked form.

I opened my forms document (created in Word2003) and could not type any alterations. A message box said form was locked.
In trying to figure out how to unlock it, I seem to have locked EVERY document! I can't find any instruction on unlocking. I cannot type anything on Word, not even a new document -- nothing at all!

And I don't even know what I did.
How can I get everything unlocked? Please help.

I've used Passware Kit just last week to unlock a Microsoft Word 2003 form document (*.doc). The software is expensive but they offer a trial version on their webpage:

http://www.lostpassword.com/kit-enterprise.htm

I ran the program, pointed it to the locked document, and it returns a password fairly quickly...I will search the web deeper if I find any free software that can do this.

Good Luck!
