128 bit encryption

Discussion in 'Computer Support' started by Bobby Armstrong, Mar 16, 2005.

  1. Hello,
    I need to "fix" a PDF file that has 128-bit encryption on it. I've tried
    Advanced PDF password recovery, and Adult PDF password recovery and neither
    one of them can even get close to this file.
    A little about the file, It a tech manual that came with a program
    called Service Advisor. When service advisor is running it installs the key
    for the encryption but when it is closed it takes the key with it. And I
    don't want to have to have the program open in order to use the pdfs. If and
    one knows of a program that you think will help me please post a link or
    send my an exe. And if anyone wants to take a crack at this file (4MB) ill
    be more then grateful. I think if I can get one done and if someone tells me
    how they did it I could take care of the other 100 files or so.

    Just email me if you want to try the file and if you know a program that can
    do this just post or email me.

  2. Looks like you have a really cheap repair shop? ;-/
    Probably that pdf is (one of) the main component of the "service advisor"
    and the program around that is just necessary to support the dongle which
    you can't duplicate.
    You really don't want a exe from a stranger, maybe it's just a trojan from
    someone who will take a inventory of all the other softwareZ on your
    workstation(s) and then blackmail you?

  3. Im guessing that you tried to look up how to do what i want to do on
    google and didnt find anything, cause there is no website for this program,
    you would think there would be cause the program is worth about 5000=-
    I just want a program that can decrypt these pdfs, that have no use
    inside the program, they are ment to be opened up outside of it but you have
    to have service advisor open which i dont like.

    Do you think that haveing the program (Service Advisor) open then tring to
    use the Adult PDF Password recovery will work? ( i cant try it right now or
    i wouldnt ask)

    While the pgm is open and the manual is available, why not try to 'print to
    PDF' and create a new file. You might need to purchase the Adobe package

  5. I tried to do that and there is a protection on letting me do that. I was
    thinking about using another computer and making the adobe printer a network
    and seeing if that is blocked.
