    Not sure if I understand this correctly, but a woman who saves Microsoft 2007 Home & Student documents on a USB pen is now prompted for a key when trying open them.

    The computer had Kaspersky 2010 Internet Security demo installed previously. Don't know if that had a feature that's been enabled and causing the issue.

    Don't know what brand of USB pen it is, but I doubt it included any encryption ability that's been intentional enabled.

    Is there some program that can crack USB device passwords?

    More than likely, but we couldn't link you to them here even if I knew one to suggest.

    I would be telling the lass that her data's gone tbh.

    Sounds like she's password protected the actual Office documents to me.
