- Rename the document to zip format
- Open it up in my favorite zip program

- Remove all the attributes in it so it looks like <w:documentProtection />
- Update the zip file
- Rename the document back to docx
- Open it up in Word, if it asks to recover the document say yes and you are able to edit the document...
