Pdf File Decrypter
R Venkat occasionally receives encrypted PDF files. Once the files are safely in his PC, they don’t need that protection.
How does he remove it so he can more easily open the file? There are times when a PDF truly needs encryption—for instance, if it contains sensitive information and someone just emailed it to you (let’s hope they used another communications method to send you the password). Once on your internal drive, this file should still be encrypted. But if you keep your sensitive files, or if you’ve, the file’s own built-in encryption is just an inconvenience.

They have clearly done this to stop files from being shared, and if anyone could decrypt the file then the file could be shared. So you can't. DRM is (some googling will show) a HUGELY controversial thing.
So here’s how to remove it. [Have a tech question? Ask PCWorld Contributing Editor Lincoln Spector. Send your query to.] And no, I’m not about to tell you how to hack PDF encryption. I’m assuming here that you’re the legitimate recipient of the file, and that you already have the password. (Besides, it's pretty much impossible with a strong password.) The simplest route requires a PDF printer driver.
This is a program that appears to Windows as a print driver, but instead of sending data to a printer, it creates a PDF file. Check your printer drivers—you may already have one installed. If not, there are plenty of free ones available. By the way, when you install BullZip, you’ll be asked to install three other programs. These aren’t; they’re tools that BullZip actually needs to run properly.
You’ll also need a PDF reader other than Adobe’s, which blocks this workaround. Load the file into Foxit Reader, entering the password when prompted.
