"Worst on-line ordering system ever -- still waiting"

July 24, 2013  |  By MKCJCBCFQR

 |  Version: Advanced PDF Password Recovery 5.5

Pros

I'm still waiting for my order to go through so I can use the real product. The free demo tool decrypted the first page of the target pdf just fine, but leaves all other pages blank as a demo restriction. I opted to buy the full product, but this company seems disinterested in taking customers' money without a painful multi-day review and reject cycle I've never experienced anywhere else on the web when ordering.

Cons

The company has a dysfunctional order taking process, requiring up to 24-hour "payment review" for a perfectly good credit card, then rejecting a perfectly good credit card; requiring a 24-hour "review" for a "Paypal" payment attempt, then rejecting said Paypal attempt. All my payment methods are in good standing, but this company can't seem to get out of it's own way to close a transaction.

Summary

Maybe I'll update my review if I'm dazzled by the actual product (if I ever receive it). By the very nature of this product's functionality, it would seem that a customer's need would be urgent, so order transaction delays are just silly. Someone is not thinking.

"If you just want the text it will work"

January 17, 2013  |  By andjoys

 |  Version: Advanced PDF Password Recovery 5.5

Pros

Something resembling the document was unlocked.

Cons

It completely reformatted the PDF, and the result doesn't resemble the original much.

"You will have to wait for online delivery"

July 06, 2012

 |  Version: Advanced PDF Password Recovery 5.5

Pros

Unknown. Haven't been able to use it yet.

Cons

You might as well go to a store and buy it. After paying by credit card and selecting download delivery, I get an e-mail telling me I'll have to wait between 4-24 hours for my order to be verified: "Your order for "Advanced PDF Password Recovery Professional" has been received and is being verified by our team. Your order will most likely be processed within the next 4 hours, but in no case will it take more than 24 hours."

Summary

This is the first time I've bought software online and had to wait between 4-24 hours to get a link to download the software. Ridiculous.

"What they actually mean by TRIAL VERSION?"

October 23, 2011  |  By ethan004

 |  Version: Advanced PDF Password Recovery 5.04

Pros

Would love to mention in case if i was allowed to explore the features of this software in so called trial version.

Cons

Actually the whole software

Summary

Like others, I'm also not impressed with this software at all because their trial version is more like an advertisement version who does nothing productive. Instead of this i would recommend another similar tool I've found which is way more better than this. I've tried their trial version and now I'm using the licensed version and it works just fine. Here is the link of the site where you can find this tool

"It works and does the job. All thumbs up!!"

August 26, 2010  |  By hernandoch

 |  Version: Advanced PDF Password Recovery 5.03

Pros

Is cheap, and it works beautiful, without any hassle.

Cons

So far I don't know any Cons... maybe that is not free... :)

Summary

Bottom line is you will buy it and use it happily ever after as it does the job without any problem.

"Demo worked- full version works even better!"

September 26, 2009  |  By scott_aleks_corp

 |  Version: Advanced PDF Password Recovery 4

Pros

It is fast

Cons

could be cheaper (I'm poor)

Summary

The demo worked, only 10% of the document, and that convinced me to go to the full version. I tried several other programs and they didn't work- one wanted the "Owner" password (if I remembered the owner password I wouldn't have this problem), and another merely told me the it "could" decrypt the file but I wasn't convinced. This one you can really know will work with your file because it will unlock the first 10%

"Bad waste of disk space."

April 14, 2009  |  By mrcrazzzzy

 |  Version: Advanced PDF Password Recovery 4

Pros

Didn't find any

Cons

It was unalbe to open even the simplest of PDF files I tried it on. I even broke out an older laptop I had with windows 98 on it (ugh) built a pdf with adobe 6.0, and it could not even open it! So uninstalled quickly. It was a complete waste of time.

Summary

If you wish, you can chance wasting your time, or if your just into downloading stuff to play with so you can clean your registry when you uninstal, then by all means, download it. They offer it for $49? Its worth that NOT to mess with it!

Apparently, the protection of the file I tried to decrypt is not supported by this software.

Summary

Doesn't work on all files.

"Who is going to pay me for my wasted time? Elcomsoft? ...I doubt it."

October 29, 2005  |  By mynameisx

 |  Version: Advanced PDF Password Recovery 1.5

Pros

I really like the fact that Elcomsoft will sell me a functioning version of the software since their 'trial' version does nothing useful at all.

Cons

What I don't like about the Advanced PDF Password Recovery 1.5 free 'trial' from Elcomsoft is that this is NOT a TRIAL of the software at all.

I already know what the software does... it decrypts protected pdfs, right? I feel sure that the software actually performs this task, since Elcomsoft will take my money and sell me the software with this claim. Since I already know all of this, I have to wonder why Elcomsoft (and Download.com by association I'm sorry to say) feels that they should waste my time and the time of all of the other persons who have downloaded what is billed as a 'trial' version of the software, when in fact the executable I have installed on the hard drive of my system is NOTHING.

Nothing but ADWARE, that is.

The trial version of this software is NOT A TRIAL (excuse the excessive caps), but is instead a fully non-functional advertisement for their product which they have tricked me into placing on my drive, in my registry, and in my life.

The software does indeed decrypt the first small portion of a pdf, leaving the rest of the new 'decrypted' file blank. I could just type the first little bit up myself and save the PITA (acronym) of installing, attempting to use, and uninstalling a perfectly useless piece of junk.

I am so tired of 'trying' out software that does nothing except suck away the precious moments of my life.

A 'trial' of software will allow the user to... USE the software, not just look at the pretty pictures on the screen. I could have checked out the screenshots and gotten as good a result! Thanks, Elcomsoft!

You're the bomb.

For those of you reading this... don't waste your time any longer by considering to download this trial or you will be doing yourself a disservice. Taking into account the lack of basic respect Elcomsoft has for us in not outwardly stating that the trial is nothing but a disabled advertisement, I would recommend never paying them any money for anything ever. Harsh? Just? I don't know. All I know is my butt hurts.
