On advice from a friend, and against my better judgement, I downloaded folder lock to secure my documents. This program: 1) Did not secure anything. My docs were still able to be accessed. 2) Had a very limited trial version that was not made clear on the website. 3) Could not be completely uninstalled, even in safe mode. The program made itself into a system folder. Had to do a system restore. Thanks to this forum I made sure I had numerous restore points. Being a self-admitted novice, I am wondering if anyone had a similar experience with folder lock.
