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.

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.

How do i activate windows xp home without buying it .because i did it last time but had to reinstall windows


windows xp ..do not need any activations on installing ...only need the right cd key on the copy ....but ..when you trying to update ...it will find if the copy is genuine or pirated ..and make a few problems....so ...either stop the automatic updates...and go along with them ...or when the genuine advantage program kicks in and block a few features with that desktop reminder ...that you are a victim of piracy ....just go to system 32 ...search for a file named WgaLogon.dll and rename it into something like WgaLogton.dll ....just change a character and it will forget the world it is in ...

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.

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.
