PW protected rars

Postby lowestleveler » Fri Aug 17, 2012 9:50 pm

Hey Guys, hope this isn't a repeat. I have DL several movies and got a rar file that is password protected and the NFO says to go to regator or easygator.com There is a series of choices of shareware that is suppose to choose one to unlock the password. I am pretty sure this is just a scam to download shareware or malware, but i was wondering if i was doing it wrong and these files has some validity? Thanks for the advice.. Later Gators LL :toast:

i'd be very suspicious (translation - i wouldn't download software to "unlock" those rars). my advice would be to try to find the same thing from another source, with no password. sure sounds like a scam to me.

lol, don't ever download from a site that has gator in the URL. As soon as I read that, I had flashbacks to my parents installing Gator on their windows 98 machine.... THE NIGHTMARES ARE BACK :lol:

Never signup for website games.
Never send your email to a site for a password to unlock.
Never install there "custom" codex.
etc.

to unlock any rar.

99% of the time anything "protected" like that are fakes, and spyware.
