    I am looking for a good encryption program, nothing fancy, just enough to encrypt files. Does anyone know of any that are good and free?

    Actually I am looking for more of a Right Click > Encrypt File approach, so far everything I've tested has been either glitchy or doesn't suit what I need. :doubt:

    Errm, Call me stupid, but I could never quite figure out how to use the Key system or how it works on PGP and the like, do you know of any sites with a tutorial/information on it?

    Thank you all for the help, I was looking at AxxCrypt, and also http://www.handybits.com/easycrypto.htm from the from the "Introduction to freeware encryption tools" topic in the Privacy Software forum (Ah, stupid me, should've seen it. lol.) So I will try them both out.

    When I tried Handybits ( it was a while ago) I ran Spybot and it claimed to have found some spyware or something in the program. Does anyone know if that changed?

    I second Axcrypt or PGP 8.1. I have PGP on my computer now along with Truecrypt.
