mostly of the times the password is the site where you got it from. Otherwise,use a rar password cracker can take for ever. If you want talk to shabbir,and post the name of the program,maybe somebody has another link,unless of course what it was is personal,then im sorry.

removing the password by using a RAR password cracked is very tough.
For example if i have a password like the one below
U can't crack. If u put all the possible combinations, it'll take more than days to crack. If the file is really important to you, then run the sys for a week and find out the password.
Good luck

ohh, it was a zip file, but i found a zip brute force, it was really hard finding one that
was 100% free. If you guys wanna use it, its free and u can brute force any size passwords.
its called Picozip recovery tool. its great so everyone go and download it
