XLS UnProtector / Unlocker

There was a request about unlocking / unprotecting Excel files (engineering-international.com). If you can open the Excel file, it means it is not 100% protected. Sometimes you can just open, but cannot edit. Or, cannot rich to VBA part. There are some manual solutions for such a case; renaming .xlsx to .zip, extract, then searching / replacing on it etc.. But, if you have ~300 pcs files, what can you do? I coded small utility which is doing all these things. Here, I am sharing the source code of single file version. You can easily adapt it for more files.

Code:
            string extractPath = @".\raduga_temp";				<- temporary directory to unzip files						
            bool is_patched_ = false;

            try
            {

                ZipFile.ExtractToDirectory(file_1, extractPath);		<- unzip target file

                string[] files_2 = Directory.GetFiles(extractPath, "*.xml", SearchOption.AllDirectories);	<- we will search in *.xml files
                foreach (string file_2 in files_2)
                {
                    try
                    {
                        string contents = File.ReadAllText(file_2);
                        string target_1 = @"<workbookProtection";		<- WorkBook protection
                        string target_2 = @"<sheetProtection";			<- WorkSheet protection
                        string son = @"/>";					<- end of xml element
                        bool exist_ = contents.Contains(target_1);		<- Is there WorkBook protection?
                        if (exist_)
                        {
                            contents = remove_(contents, target_1, son);	<- yes, remove element
                            Console.WriteLine("WorkBook is Unprotected !");
                        }
                        else
                        {
                            exist_ = contents.Contains(target_2);		<- Is there WorkSheet protection?
                            if (exist_)
                            {
                                contents = remove_(contents, target_2, son);	<- yes, remove element
                                Console.WriteLine("WorkSheet is Unprotected !");
                            }
                        }
                        if (exist_)
                        {
                            File.SetAttributes(file_2, FileAttributes.Normal);
                            File.WriteAllText(file_2, contents);		<- Write all changes
                            is_patched_ = true;
                        }
                    }
                    catch (Exception)
                    {
                        Console.WriteLine("Something is wrong !");
                    }
                }

                string[] files_3 = Directory.GetFiles(extractPath, "*.bin", SearchOption.AllDirectories);	<- we will search in *.bin files
                byte[] find_ = Encoding.UTF8.GetBytes("DPB=");			<- Signature for VBA macro protection
                byte[] replace_ = Encoding.UTF8.GetBytes("DPx=");		<- just disturb / rename it
                foreach (string file_3 in files_3)
                {
                    try
                    {
                        byte[] file = File.ReadAllBytes(file_3);		<- binary search / replace part
                        int i, j, iMax = file.Length - find_.Length;
                        for (i = 0; i < iMax; i++)
                        {

                            if (j == find_.Length) break;
                        }
                        if (i < iMax)
                        {
                            for (j = 0; j < find_.Length; j++)
                                file[i + j] = replace_[j];
                            File.WriteAllBytes(file_3, file);
                            Console.WriteLine("VBA part is Unlocked !");
                            is_patched_ = true;
                        }

I think you should delete your message . There is no protector. Excel is protector itself.
