"Works Great - Does what it says it will do."
Don't be freaked out by the panic-mongering people who don't understand how this program works and who are regurgitating back the fact that their antivirus flagged it as a virus or malware. The high rating reviewers here are telling the truth: it gets flagged by your antivirus software because it is a hacking tool; it has to be to work, that's what you want. Think about it, you lost your WPA key. You need a hack to recover it. Do your research. Read the website of the guy who wrote the program. (Cited by c|net, above, www.nirsoft.net)
None, once you get past the scary comments from sheeple reviewers. (Baa! baa! "My antivirus scared me, and I don't have any common sense." Baa! baa!)
This thing was easy, and it worked as advertised. I have no idea what the earlier review, the guy who said it was "crapware", wanted it to do, or why he said it was not user friendly. It was the easiest thing I did all day on a damned computer and it saved my butt after discovering that our prior IT guy thought he was just going to "remember" the key, instead of writing it down.
One other thought, if you really want to be anally safe about it, try this: If you have an old hard drive sitting in a junk draw or closet that was once linked to your WAN, put that back in your system, boot up off of that, then download the program to that drive and get the key. Then, copy and paste the hex key to a Notepad file, and save it to a flash drive. Re-swap the hard drives, throw the old drive back in the bottom of the closet, where it can't hurt you. Cut and paste just the hex key to the new system when it asks, and you're in like flint. No executable on your new system or hard drive, and no chance the big scary "trojan" can hurt you.
