Excel Password Cracker

In a fit of madness I protected an Excel spreadsheet with a password that isn't something obvious or standard.


Anyone know of a free and trustworthy password cracker I can use to unlock it?

This any good?

That depends on whether you've actually used that without problems and can attest to the fact it doesn't contain spyware/virus/etc; or whether you've decided to exhibit incredible genius and have posted the first result from Googling "excel password cracker".

This is fully trusted and very useful in the excel password recovery.Even i retrieve my excel password by using this software. You have to use Office Password Recovery software and it is fully free.One thing is beneficial in this software is you can retrieve password of all office products document.like if you forget your ms word document password then that time you can use this software and it will retrieve your word password also.This is all-in-one software.

You certainly took your time! We usually prefer speedier responses to calls for help around here. Anything longer than 3½ years is considered slacking.

Shouldn't this be moved under "Getting Old" ?

It appears to be a very slow honeytrap for spammers. Their message was rather boring so I just deleted it this time.

I wonder if Peter ever got into that excel doc.

I like to think his password was based around what he likes on his pizzas, but by being noncommittal to us about the whole subject, I suspect his tastes vary from day to day, week to week, in a fractured and fickle way, and that being the case would take even the Feds' best efforts centuries to crack.

TBH, if his password is based on pizza topping preference, the best thing he could do is keep it to himself.

In fact, that might explain everything....

I think we're onto something. So all he has to do is choose another password system, which then frees up his clandestine pizza toppings for the world to enjoy.

Why the edit from Matt though?

PB, did you ever crack that file?

Edit: That's weird this shows as being edited by Matt on the mobile version and not on the desktop version. :/

No idea. I don't even remember what the file might have been.

(I don't see any edit from Matt?)

That is odd - there's an "edit_text" div on light mode that isn't even in the HTML for full mode. Not just that post either - your edit marker only appears in light too, so presumably a missing line or broken if statement.
