Unfortunately this is both normal and unavoidable.

Restoring persistent passwords and noisy computers go hand in hand.

High-speed password searches require a 100% CPU/GPU load. This means that they start to give off a tremendous amount of heat, so your computers warms up and the fans try to keep it cool. This makes a lot of noise.

Our entire software suite guarantees maximum password search speed on any computer, so you need to expect some noise when cracking passwords for access to:

  • Microsoft Office / OpenOffice / Adobe PDF documents
  • Zip/WinZip and Rar/WinRar archives
  • Apple iOS / BlackBerry OS backups
  • TrueCrypt volumes
  • WPA/WPA2 handshakes

Don't look for Excel/Word passwords — remove them at
