Open the archive in a hex editor and try to look for clues in the headers.

Edit: For example UPX packed programs have this near the beginning:

That output looks weird. Either corrupted or wrong encoding. Can you change encoding? As in ANSI, UTF8 or whatever options there are.

I tried to google using the hints but no dice. Looks like it says Cracked by HellRaiser maybe?

OK, I'll bite. Charles, what are you hoping to achieve here ? This reads like an 'X, Y Problem'

Try the Naughty Unpacker as (from memory) that can handle PFX Packer. Or New Depack.
