Default Word cannot open the document: user does not have access privilege

My main HD recently crashed but I save all of my documents on a second HD. I
got a new HD and installed windows 2000 pro on it. I have Office XP and when
I try to open some of my old documents I get the error "Word cannot open the
document: user does not have access privileges"

I have tried taking ownership of the files, they are encrypted (although I
never did this to them I guess it's just defalut) and I am unable to decrypt
them. I've tried taking ownership and decrypting in safe mode as well as
normal mode, both times logged in a administrator. the files were created
under a different user (with administrator permissions) on my old windows
2000 pro setup.

if anyone has any ideas on where to go from here I would really appriciate it.

what if you create a user with the same name and password?

I tried that and it didn't work either, I'm not sure what it is. I'm going to
try some more stuff but any other ideas would be great.
