Windows 7: Pdf password

24 Jul 2017   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium 64-Bit SP1
Pdf password

Hi everyone I am sorry to bug but I have a problem, I have run across a bunch of PDF's on my dads computer. Every time I try and open one it asks me for a password and of course I don't have one. I have tried everything I can think of to open them.

Is there someone who can help me with this. I wish someone would make some kind of software that would help with things like this. I have looked at Fry's electronics and did not find anything that would help and at a place called newegg, not sure I would keep that name, I guess they have there reasons behind the name like all of us.

Thank you all for any help you can give me.

I think forum rules ban mentioning a program by name but searching for "pdf password recovery" or "pdf password remover" will probably find something that might work or just might encrypt your drive.

I would probably spin up a Virtual machine running Linux and use Wine to run the program if you find one.

I have never needed one so I do not know a reputable name.

The simple answer to your problem is; ask your dad for the password.

This computer was set up about a year ago with sharing enabled. It worked perfectly the entire time. Then a few weeks ago, it started prompting for a password. I've been racking my brain out since. Unfortunately, I let too much time pass before realizing I could roll back using System...
