    I want to know what's the best way to protect a .txt or .doc file with very sensitive data including passwords/pin's and stuff. I am currently using truecrypt for it but are there more safer solutions for it?

    TrueCrypt sounds to me as the most sensible choice.

    If the data to be kept is binary, I'd suggest a TrueCrypt container.

    If the data is ASCII, I'd use the simpler, just-as-secure: fSekrit (free) (http://www.donationcoder.com/Software/Other/fSekrit/); Steganos LockNote (free); or AI RoboForm (worth the small price).
