    i tried extracting a compressed file with winRAR , and the file asks me for a password , does anyone know a good extracting program that can skip through this (password) ?

    None exist, you definitely need the password. The password itself is used in the encryption/compressing of the file.

    But none of them work. Unless the password is something easy like Britney Spears or Homer Simpson, they usually come with a shitty wordlist that contains common passwords.

    All brute-force cracking programs are a waste of time when there is only one possible correct outcome and you've no character limit or any clue as to what it might resemble.

    It would take more than a human lifetime for one of those programs to crack a password like ahju87lhfa3012rt

    You usually don't get them. Like manker said, when i had one to crack oncee i tried with 2, 3, 4 digits then once up to 5 or 6 it starts to take hours to finish cracking. anymore and your at days, months, even years to finish cracking.
