Exclamation Files encryption and security - HELP!!

hi guys,

new to this forum and need help with one problem I have. here we go....

I am an administrator on a yahoo group for a youth organisation and will be u/loading files to that site for them to use. What i`m asking is this:

1) Is there a program that will encrypt microsoft office and PDF files that after a set period ( approx a week ) the password for that file is rendered useless, and they must ask for a new copy of that file.

2) One password that can be used only once for when that file is opened.

3) anything else that will do the job that I have tried to explain.

The reason I ask this is due to the fact other "staff" ( non members of the group ) seem to get their hands on my work and use it on their web sites without even asking to use it.

any help would be greatfully appreciated.

best regards

K

You can't really do this, as far as I know it's impossible.

I don't know of a software that lets you use temporary passwords but encrypting/password protecting them I would use WINRAR or 7ZIP

I thought I was asking the impossible. But worth asking anyway. So far i`ve used pdf995 to covert word to pdf and then pdf re-direct to give them passwords.
