Unlock PDF file faster than ever

You can now unlock PDF faster than before because of new network distributed search technology, which allows you to use other computers on the network as search agents. The more agents search for your password at a time - the faster the password can be found. Moreover PDF unlocker allows partial CPU usage of the agents in order not to interfere with other processes they are running.
