It also uses low-level optimization and GPU acceleration to speed up the recovery process. AOPR can combine brute-force, dictionary and advanced attacks into a straightforward workflow, and guarantee the recovery of legacy Word and Excel documents protected with 40-bit encryption.
In this article, we will show you how to use AOPR to recover your lost passwords for Microsoft Office documents. You will need to download and install AOPR from the official website[^1^] or from a trusted source like FileHippo[^2^]. You will also need a valid serial key to activate the full version of AOPR. You can purchase one from the official website[^1^] or find one online[^3^], but be careful of scams and malware.
Step 1: Launch AOPR and select your document
After installing AOPR, launch it from your desktop or start menu. You will see a simple interface with a toolbar and a file list. Click on the \"Open\" button on the toolbar or press Ctrl+O to browse for your document. You can also drag and drop your document onto the file list.
AOPR supports various file formats, such as Word (.doc, .docx), Excel (.xls, .xlsx), PowerPoint (.ppt, .pptx), Access (.mdb, .accdb), Outlook (.pst), Project (.mpp), Money (.mny), Visio (.vsd), Publisher (.pub) and OneNote (.one). You can select multiple files at once if you want to recover passwords for more than one document.
Step 2: Choose an attack type and configure the settings
After selecting your document, you will see its details on the right panel, such as file name, size, type, encryption type and password length. You will also see a list of available attack types below the file details. Depending on the encryption type of your document, some attack types may be grayed out or unavailable.
The attack types are:
Instant Recovery: This attack type tries to recover your password instantly by using known backdoors or tricks in the Office family. This is the fastest and easiest way to recover your password, but it only works for certain encryption types and versions of Office.
Dictionary Attack: This attack type tries to recover your password by using a list of words or phrases that are likely to be used as passwords. You can use the built-in dictionary or load your own custom dictionary file. You can also modify the dictionary settings to add variations or mutations to the words.
Brute-force Attack: This attack type tries to recover your password by trying all possible combinations of characters within a specified range. You can set the minimum and maximum length of the password, as well as the character set to use (such as lowercase letters, uppercase letters, digits, symbols, etc.). This is the most thorough but also the slowest way to recover your password.
Mask Attack: This attack type is similar to brute-force attack, but it allows you to specify a part of the password that you know or remember. For example, if you know that your password starts with \"A\" and ends with \"Z\", you can use a mask like \"A?????Z\" to reduce the search space. You can also use wildcards like \"?\" for any character or \"*\" for any number of characters.
Combined Attack: This attack type combines dictionary and brute-force attacks into one. It tries every word in the dictionary with every possible combination of characters within a specified range 29c81ba772
