RAR Password Cracker requires Windows 9x/ME/XP/NT4/2000/2003. There are no special requirements for memory capacity, but the processor performance should be as high as possible. Special hardware is not required.

hi,
the most common method is using a dictionary attack or brute force. most rar files that can be downloaded in torrent or warez sites sometimes password protected those files using their addresses, using brute force attack to break those kind of passwords.

Usually, but not always, downloaded zip files are encrypted with a password so that sites get you to visit them (bit torrent etc) If this is a genuine file from a bone fide site, they will send you the password or add it to the file name. (filename.xz43.zip) the xz43 being the password) Run your virus checker (right click and select scan on the zip file icon).

Most sites will have the "P" icon next to the file indicating it has a password. In my experience, I rarely download any zip with a password as 9/10 times they have packed the zip with adware and other junk.

Download Version 4.12 This program is intended to recover lost passwords for RAR/WinRAR archives of versions 2.xx and 3.xx. The program finds by the method of exhaustive search all possible combinations of characters ("bruteforce" method), or using passwords from lists ("wordlist" or "dictionary" method). Self-extracting archives and multivolume archives are supported. The program is able to save a current state (you can interrupt the program at any time, and restart from the same state later). Estimated time calculator allows you to configure the program more carefully.

Can you tell us from where did you download the dota 2 game? If you have downloaded it from warez/hack or torrent site, then it is possible that the rar file would have virus in it or some other things that would effect your computer. Best you can do is download it from the manufactuer's website only or so legal game stores.

Well, incase if you have downloaded if illegaly from the torrent site then as per the forum rules we cannot make further discussion on same as it is against the rules of the forums. For more information you can check the forum rules here - Forum Guidelines & Terms of Service
