    7-ZIP is truly powerful, adding a password to your files is even easier.

    We will try this program to break the passwords of this type of compressed files.

    It is very slow. They should make a version that takes advantage of all the cores of the pc. It's maddening. 🙁

      slow is that with a core i3 (2 cores 2 threads) it tells you that while it swears to crack the password it is using 8 keys per second while in images with heavier systems and less powerful computers it says that it uses 29 keys
