We have no way of knowing if this is your computer, your employer's, girlfriends' or stolen. No help for passwords.
I think you mean invisible, not invincible.

Teky I recommend you read the complete thread again.
It is stated many, many times we can not help you recover a lost password for encryption.
If one could bypass a encryption password their would be no purpose for encryption.

Please read the Forum rules again. I think #6 should be helpful.

The only advice that anybody can give you is don't forget the password or copy it and put in a safe place.
