My script works perfectly now!!! :)
This is my first script too!!
The problem is that this code sucks. I hate to bash my own code, but it is really inefficient and I am sure that there is a better way to perform the brute force.

Here is the code, but be warned it is very long and annoying:

import os
import md5

def bruteForce():
    #1-26 are letters, 27-36 are nums
    lettersNums = ('', 'a', 'b', 'c', 'd', 'e', 'f', 'g', 'h', 'i', 'j', 'k', 'l', 'm', 'n', 'o', 'p', 'q', 'r', 's', 't', 'u', 'v', 'w', 'x', 'y', 'z', '0', '1', '2', '3', '4', '5', '6', '7', '8', '9')

    verboseCheck = False
    yourHash = raw_input("Enter your hash you wish to crack: ")
    verbose = raw_input("Enable verbose mode? (y/n): ")
    if verbose == "y":
        verboseCheck = True
    else:
        verboseCheck = False
    pwdCracked = False
    while pwdCracked == False:
        if charRun <= 36:
            pwdCheck = lettersNums[charRun] + lettersNums[charRun1] + lettersNums[charRun2] + lettersNums[charRun3] + lettersNums[charRun4] + lettersNums[charRun5] + lettersNums[charRun6] + lettersNums[charRun7] + lettersNums[charRun9] + lettersNums[charRun10] + lettersNums[charRun11] + lettersNums[charRun12] + lettersNums[charRun13] + lettersNums[charRun14] + lettersNums[charRun15]

Does anyone no a way to make this script run faster i.e. shorten it somehow. Thanks.

Using a list would make your code shorter:
