    If the file is password protected (the pdf doesn't open unless you insert the correct user password) this won't help.
    If the pdf can be opened but it has 'restrictions' that prevent printing, it might help.

    This program does not work (won't install) in Windows 7, but I have used it on an XP machine to remove the printing restriction on a pdf.

    Good luck.

    did you originally encrypt the document
    most encrypted PDF have 2 passwords A read only password that is given to anyone needing to open & read it & a master password that allows editing/printing etc
    What's more, i share you a article about How to remove PDF password and restriction,which has made the whole process easy.
    It saved me lots of time on this. I just shared the guide with you.
    Hope it can do you a bit favor.
