Make read only/password protected docs in MS Word 2007

Ever have the problem of people messing with your word documents? This guy shows you the solution by telling you how to create password protected encrypted word documents. The process starts with your open file. Clicking on save as... and in the popup window clicking the tools button in the bottom left corner and clicking general options. There it shows you text entry boxes, one for setting a password to open the file, another to set a password for rights to modify the file. Enter your password into either slot, then choose to make it read only, which is recommended, by the checkbox under the text entry boxes then click OK and reenter your password. Save the document and it's protected.
