Default Presario 41xx QuickRestore Disc 271424-B21 Zip Password Discovered

would just like to share, I have discovered the .zip password for this disc.
(let a .zip password cracker chew on the files for several days before i
gave that route up)

after trying lots of permutaions, i just decided to try all the numbers in
the filename, omitting the 'b' at the end. with the "predator" keyword that
all the discs seem to use at the beginning, and then it worked. yay.

The Case Sensitive Password for the Zip files on this disc is
PREDATOR20702 - Red QuickRestore Disc Serial #271424-B21

The Files Are named 20702A.zip and 20702B.zip, in the Folder "COSNA05".

so if you get nothing using the last three digits as has been previously
tried, then try them all, in forward or reverse order, or different chunks
of the filename.

Disc Came with This old, moldy, slow-when-it-was-new piece of crap Presario

My Motivation for getting the files open is I wanted BigMovie.AVI out of
20702B.zip. It's a nice demo .avi with excellent sound. got big badass
speakers compared to when i had the presario and i wanted to enjoy the

And i wanted the Demo Movies with the Actor who played "Q" on Star Trek TNG.
(machine came with a whole big fancy-pants intro that played the first time
you turned it on)
