Can't say that any of the programs mentioned above can be very efficient since password recovery will take years if  the password is long and complex. So it is all lies that recovery rate is 100%. When I lost my password, I googled and found a service called www.password-find.com which can instanly remove passwords from Word and Excel documents, and supports files created both in Windows and Mac editions of MS Office. Of course I was impressed when it removed password from my docx file in several seconds. However, it does not work for all files, so you might want to check it before purchasing a license to use the service.
