Microsoft Money password recover?

My father decided to buy the Microsoft money, my father changes his passwords and he has about 140 ever since 1994. my dad is always changing his password every two weeks and is always worried about people hacking into his stuff. He updated and gotten the newest Microsoft money. He now went into his old computer that had his old saved Microsoft money files on a floppy (old school huh?)Now it is asking him for a password.

Problem?

he doesnt remember nor have it.

Is there a way to get a recovery password or question to get into it?

is there a phone number to call?

my dad swears up and down that he never set a password but i think he did and just forget it (rolls eyes) like always.

Can someone help us?

Depending on the version of MS Money he's using, he may be able to use a password recovery program like this: Money password Recovery  WARNING: BUYER BEWARE!  read all of the fine print before using.  I have used several Excel/Word password recovery programs in the past, but have never used this particular one, nor can i vouch for it - BUYER BEWARE - READ THE FINE PRINT

If it's one of the newer MS-Money versions that is asking for an actual Microsoft Live Online account, I believe he is SOL.

If he is really, really THAT paranoid (sounds like he's over doing it) he might want to consider a Mac.. Although certainly not 'hack proof', a Mac is immune to the bazillion Windows Spyware/Trojan/ID Stealers that every Windows user must cope with..

"a Mac is immune"

"was", not "is"

Sorry to break your bubble Einstein, but a Mac running OS X IS STILL immune to 100% of the bazillion forms of Windows malware out there.

I never set a password either and upon reinstalling money software find it demanding a password. Cannnot find any way to undo this problem.

Download Keyfinder.2.0.1 from Mediafire.com.  This is a standalone version and does not need to install to show you your product keys/serials.
