PDF Decrypter

Editors' Review

by   / February 27, 2009

PDF Decrypter works as a counterpart to the encryption program made by the same publisher. But unlike its counterpart, we ran into some issues that prevented us from accessing the decrypted file.

We really liked the program's wizard-like interface, which walks you through the decryption process. First, you add the files that you want to decrypt. Second, you choose the output folder once the decryption takes place. We noticed that the program didn't require us to enter a password to decrypt the file. A status bar displays the decryption progress. The program quickly decrypted the file and saved it to our output destination, but when we tried to open the file, we received a message stating that the file could not be opened because it was either unsupported or damaged. The files that we used during our tests were encrypted using PDF Encrypter, so we were baffled by our results.

According to the publisher, PDF Decrypter comes with a 30-use trial period, but its more like a 30-day trial instead. Still, its poor performance means that we cant recommend this as a viable decryption tool. It cleanly uninstalled from our PC.
