Office 2007 Hack

Found a hack for Office 2007 that actually worked.

It invovles altering a file called Proof.XML which can be done only if you have ownership of the file. The blog goes on about a circuitous and cumbersome way to "take ownership". Here's a simpler way to do it: find the file, right click on it, choose Properties, then Security Tab. Select your username, go to the Advanced pane and check all boxes under Allow. Voila! The file is yours to do with as you please.
