    So i was thinking corrupting it was the best excuse.

    How do i corrupt a ms word document created with ms office 2007 (by corrupt i mean you cant open it)
    My school is using office 2003 and some pc's might have 2007.

    Sure this is wrong but its the last option i got or else im gonna get killed
    strict asian parents you know... >.>

    So please asnwer a.s.a.p!!

    Didn't we have this thread before?

    Never mind.

    Try the same thing, changing it to .txt and deleting a bunch of crap then changing it back to .ppt.

    Just open it up in a hex-editor and change the first couple of lines and you will then have a corrupt file. I hope you are happy with yourself.

    Easiest way is rename a picture to .ppt or .pptx

    Also, thanks for the idea! Will remember it for next time!

    Yeah, change some format to .pptx and hope the PC trying to open it doesn't have 2007 so you have an even better excuse

    I wouldn't recommend a jpg on the off chance something goes wrong, I'd highly suggest breaking the header or using something like a ROM that nothing else on the PC will open, works every time.
