How can I open or unlock password protected RAR/WinRAR file after RAR password forgot?


Have you really forgotten RAR password, which makes you cannot open password protected RAR file?
iSunshare RAR Password Genius would work for you without any doubt. No matter you have only one computer or lots of computers in Local Area Network, you could take it to recover forgotten RAR password. Then you could unlock or open encrypted RAR file with the password you find. That's what I find. If you want to get more information from related artilce article, see the article how to open password protected RAR/WinRAR file without password.

Im not sure what lupa paswod is if its password security you need

http://download.cnet.com/my-lockbox/3000-2144_4-10789387.html My Lockbox takes the built-in ability to hide folders in Windows a huge step further by adding password protection, drag-and-drop capability, hot keys, trusted apps list, notifications, skins, and more. My Lockbox Free protects one folder per system, and it has a banner ad. A premium upgrade protects an unlimited number of folders and eliminates the banner ads. We tried the free version.

Hope this helps

I creted a folder and put private things in the folder and i want to try and crete a password to the folder so that im the only 1 that can get in the folder


Hey, I'm going to assume you are running Windows, so let me provide an easier solution rather than creating a password for a folder.

Instead, you can create a ZIP file which contains all the "private things" you want to store, then put a password on the zip file.

- Download WinZIP: http://www.winzip.com/downwz.htm
- Install it by double-clicking on the file you downloaded
- Next, select all the private things you want to protect, right click on them and select "Add to Winzip".
- On the dialogue that will appear, you can add a password to your zip file, and then hit create.

That's it!

The file you created is called a "zip" file, and it contains all the private files you want to store. You can drag any new file you want to add on your zip file, and it will be added inside it (after you type your password). You can also take your zip file with you wherever you want!

It's a much easier solution that creating a password for a folder.

7zip can also do this, and it's completely free, but a bit harder to use: http://www.7-zip.org/download.html

Password Protect...I use Vista Home. When I go to save a file. FILE-Save AS the window that comes up has an option of "Save with Password". This option is ghosted out and can not be selected.....


There are a couple of ways to do this.

Try going to Tools;

Then Options;

Click on security Tabs;

you will see this

msword-specify-password.png
Got to Password to Open;

Click Ok;

Fill it in and you will see this;

msword-confirm-password.png
Re-enter your password;

Click Ok.

Save the file like you normally would.

This should resolve your issue.

Make sure you check your registry for Windows Vista for errors to see if that is causing the problem also.

I am including another link you may be interested in for your IE passwords also.

I have tried to add password to my files and folders and also my flash disk. How can I really do that


The password system in XP is useless, don't use it. If you need to password protect your files and folders then you will need something like True Crypt.

Access denied to documents and settings folder


The account that you are accessing; is it an Admin account, and now from the very account you are trying to access that account is a limited one, Is that so?

If that is the scenario, then there are ways through which you can get an admin access, but IF those files aren't there or are corrupted, then that is something else.

I'm waiting for your response...
Also get the properties of that account folder and tell me that folder size, to have an idea that is there something in it.


Regards, WAQAR.

Password on shared documents on a workgroup


Password Protect Folders in XP
To password protect a folder built into Windows XP (for other Windows flavors, there are some freeware/shareware programs out there).
If you have a log in password for your account, this can be used to protect folders from other users. If not, you need to creat one. Your hard drive must be formatted using NTFS (which it probably is unless you're dual booting with another operating system). Here's what to do...
Right-click the folder that you want to make private and choose "Properties" (or Alt+Double-click). Go to the "Sharing" tab and check the "Make this folder private" box.
private-folder1.jpg
Click Apply . If you do not have a password on your account, a box will pop up asking if you want to assign a password. This must be done if you want to make the folder private, so click Yes . You will need to use your password to log on to your computer from then on.
Type in a password then confirm it. Click the "Create Password" button then close the Password window.
Click OK in the Properties dialog box.
Now anyone else logged on to your computer can't access that file without knowing your password.
