Editors' Review

Not as promising as its name sounds, Advanced Office Password Breaker (AOPB) requires registration to actually decrypt Office files. The program is designed to decrypt password-protected Excel and Word 97/2000 through XP/2003 files. The program's utilitarian interface is certainly a strength. Most decryption programs attempt to find a password through dictionary or brute-force attacks. AOPB actually tests all possible encryption keys to decrypt Excel and Word files. That method results in a much shorter decryption time, especially for users who utilize P4 and dual-CPU setups. Unfortunately, the demo version allows only single-CPU decryption. AOPB will test your CPU to determine the number of keys it can test per second. Running the demo finds and saves the encryption key, but you must register the program to recover the document. Everyone will find AOPB easy to use, but the lengthy decryption period and program limitations make this a program of last resort.

"Works as advertised"

 |  Version: Advanced Office Password Breaker 1.31


I used this software to recover a Word document that had a complex password set with Word97 compatible encryption. Ordinary dictionary and brute force attacks don't work well in this situation.

Easy to use and stable, it does one thing and does it well. It even recovered gracefully after a power failure by resuming the keyspace search at the point it was at just before power was lost.

My only quibble is the $15 "shipping" charge for electronic delivery. Seems a bit high, but if you need the data back, this software will do it.
