"I have been trying to find a program to encrypt folders in my USB key chain device with the following capabilities:
1, Usable on any PC (Ie installed on the disk).
3, Usable without a Mensa IQ
4, Ability to create an unlocked section would be cool!
I have googled and tried a couple, but one just hung and the other immediately started to load unwanted software. Which worried me.
So I decided to just ask here instead!!
Any tips would be appreciated, I dont exactly need CIA level security, I just want to secure any telephone numbers or bank numbers or passwords or such in case its lost."
