How do I change a PDF file from secured to unsecured?

I am using Adobe reader. I am trying to either remove the password from the file so to edit the PDF or, convert the PDF into a word document. Either way, I am not allowed to do so due to the PDF being secured, and password protected.

How is this inhibitor removed in order to either convert, or share with others so to edit the PDF file?

It's not possible to do that with Reader. You need Acrobat (and the password, of course).

Even with an unsecured PDF Adobe Reader can neither "edit" nor "export".
