Interface advertising small price to pay

Ignore the product pushes, and you'll find that this comprehensive file encryption program leaves files safe and secure.

Though we could have done without the product pushes, this comprehensive file encryption program left our files safe and secure.

MyWinLocker has a professionally designed user interface, but there's some wasted space thanks to the product advertisements. However, aside from those, we found the tab-style fairly easy to navigate. The encryption feature can be accessed several ways--through the main interface, by right-clicking on a specific file or folder, or through Windows Explorer. We like the option to use our master password or create a new one to encrypt the file. Test files were easily and successfully created, and we were able to decrypt them just as easily. As an added bonus, the program also features a personal storage disk option that lets you privately store your files. Novices will appreciate the ease of setting it up. And like the encryption and decryption features, we were able to quickly access it through the main interface or through our Windows Explorer.

The program did leave behind a few files that had to be manually removed after it was uninstalled. The ads on the interface are a small price to pay for this effective freeware, and we recommend for all users.
