doesn't look like it was created with a UK version of word.

also appears to have been ''encrypted''

Hi
USB sticks from a retail store often come with Windows-only data encryption software, which will default to becoming installed the first time the stick is used - if the user doesn't realise it may not be a good thing.

John , as i said , only program that gets anything sensible says it's encrypted.
wonder if they dragged it from NTFS which has encryption ability , onto fat32 which doesn't , instead of saving it to the pendrive.

Do they not still have a master copy on their pc ( please don't tell me they edit word documents live on a pendrive )
