    It took me 5 minutes to get through the DL Guard protection on a product only to unzip it and find yet another password protected ZIP and readme asking to send payment details to get the password.

    The product is $1000 so I'd much rather just crack the password on the RAR lol.

    Anyone have any ideas other than a bruteforcer?

    If a bruteforcer is the only option could someone recommend a good one?

    if i meet password protected zip, i'll just delete it. Since mostly are fake files. If they really want to share the real files, they won't password it. It's really not worth the effort of spending hours CPU performance to find out fake files except you know that files will be real deal.

    This looks a little more promising designed specifically for .rar

    As Brutus can be quite confusing to set up if you don't know what your doing.

    Damn, bruteforce/dictionary is just like pissing in the dark. I've got a 5 million password list running through it at the moment, doubt its one of them though :(
