Have you tried putting your thread subject into Google?

If you find a way to remove the password then in future you might as well not use one because if you can remove it any one can

There are a few tools floating around on the internet that claim to be able to crack rar files. Most use simple dictionary attacks, so it depends on how strong the password is. If it's over say....5 characters then forget about it.

There's a tool by the name of rar password recovery...............or something like that anyway. It will scan and find the letters for the password that the rar file has been made with. Be prepared though, it might take about a day to find the password that the rar file has been encrypted with. Oh by the way, you also have to buy the software to get the full scanning range as well.
