The software works well. However the registration process does not work correctly. I paid for the software, but it only let me use it once and then went back into trial mode. The developer has not yet responded to my complaint. Based on other comments on MacUpdate, the developer has been aware of this issue for some time, but has not addressed it. Tis is unacceptable.

Yep, I had the same problem. I paid my money, it worked once, then started printing "DEMO" over everything I dropped on it. I was so annoyed I wrote my own free application. Search for "PDF Unlock" here on MacUpdate. Its not as fancy looking, but its free.

PDF-Recover Professional 4.0.2 could unlock some of my encrypted PDFs, but some not. Better try PDFLab 2.0.3r2 (freeware) which is available via many google links: it can unlock/ unprotect/ unsecure/ etc. all kinds of PDF encryptions by simply re-generating the PDF (that means by saving it as a new PDF) using CMD-R. Just try and enjoy.

Hi; it is not illegal to modify your PDF data 'for your own use'. It is only illegal to re-publish or re-sell etc. copyrighted PDF contents that you have modified.

Can't see it is at all illegal. What could potentially be illegal is what you turn it to.

However some people are just compulsively anal and set security like they are Mel Gibson in Conspiracy Theory. I turned to this to get at material an ex-employee had made inaccessible without our knowledge.

Besides being "illegal to republish or resell copyrighted PDF contents" there is also the question of cracking passwords for documents circulated for internal consumption within an organization (corporation, university, government agency, etc.) with some kind of malicious intent. God knows I'm not a lawyer,but I wonder if such situations can acquire legal implications.

pdf-Recover Professional lets you crack PDF master passwords. Remove limitations from your PDF file also Adobe digital rights management (DRM)!

pdf-Recover Professional is the leading software solution to disable restricted operations on PDF files instantly. It decrypts protected Adobe Acrobat PDF forms & files, which have "master" password set and removes the security settings with one click. If you can't remember your PDF passwords, pdf-Recover Professional will allow to reset encrypted files.

You cannot print a PDF file?
You cannot copy and paste texts from a PDF?
You cannot edit a PDF document?
Then your file is protected with a 'master password!'

The pdf file use adobe digital rights? Modifying of this rights destroys the pdf file.

pdf-Recover Professional creates a 1:1 copy of your PDF-file without any password limitations, that means you will be able to copy, print, edit texts and images from this file. Then you can set new, individual passwords for this document.

In addition to that pdf-Recover Professional includes many more very helpful and productive features which support document presentation, document management and document handling. For example: Define new security and encryption settings (no encryption, up to 256 bit encryption), set presentation properties (like a Powerpoint presentation), set Acrobat Reader properties (toolbars and thumbnails visible/invisible, layout etc.), set new document titles, author information, topics and much more.

Once you created some categories of settings you can save as templates and use for other documents later.

pdf-Recover Professional will remove password protected PDF files up to 256-bit-AES-encryption.
  • Decrypt PDF files which have master password set
  • Removes Adobe digital rights management
  • Open decrypted document in any PDF viewer without any restrictions - i.e. with edit, copy, print, annotate functions enabled
  • Define new security and encryption settings
  • Set presentation properties
  • Set Acrobat Reader properties (toolbars, thumbnails, layout etc.)
  • Save own templates
  • Set document titles, author information, topics
  • Drag and drop feature
  • Adobe 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 and FormDesigner compatible
Please pay attention! pdf-Recover Professional does not work with documents which have user-level passwords set (preventing the files from being opened), eBooks which requires Adobe Digital Editions or files which are protected by third party programs.
