    "If it was possible to give it '0' i would."

    July 27, 2014  |   By Odegra the Devourer

    Version: My Lockbox 3.3.1

    Pros

    Somewhat protects ONE file of your choosing..

    Cons

    Slow for the most part, in practically everything it does, encrypting and opening files alike. My biggest reason for actually taking the time to come onto cnet and actually flame this program is for the fact that i simply cannot uninstall this program. I found an encrypt-er that suits my needs but already had the My lockbox installed. Got around uninstalling it with I/Obit uninstaller and it froze my computer... Odd, but i force restarted (hard shutdown) when i rebooted it and tried it through the same route again thinking it was a fluke, i was met with the same results, and have been in practically every other method I have tried in unistalling this program...

    Summary

    Not entirely sure if it has to do with problems in compatibility with win 8 or if my machine is conflicting with another encryption software but i find myself with a new fairly useless permanent program on my computer.... So i suppose if you have windows 8 be a little weary of downloading and installing this program. Hope others have had better luck with it on win 8 and it's just me.

    "Nice software. Does what it says"

    March 12, 2014  |   By Ovy2050

    Version: My Lockbox 3.1.6

    Pros

    Quick and simple.

    Cons

    Often I found my folder unlocked if my pc goes off for any power failure.

    Summary

    I am happy using it

    "Useful unless you use Malwarebytes"

    January 26, 2014  |   By MrHenders0n

    Version: My Lockbox 3.0

    Pros

    Simple interface, very convenient. I used it all the time on my old PC setup.

    Cons

    Can cause crashes with Malwarebytes Anti-Malware.

    Summary

    The big problem for me is that under Windows 7, using Malwarebytes, it crashes the system at startup, unless you disable Malwarebytes real-time protection from auto-starting (and it's very easy to forget to start it later). The publisher is explicit about this.

    Also: be aware that there's no encryption, and the hidden files are easily found by starting the PC under Linux.

    "I like the lock folder"

    March 30, 2013  |   By whitewolf759

    Version: My Lockbox 2.9.7

    Pros

    works great for locking up folder with many in it, and hides the folder after locked.

    Cons

    once you lose the password, you can't uninstall it or get a new password. I miss my lockbox. I am locked out until get a new password.

    Summary

    great but locked out. If anyone can help let me know here.

    Updated on May 6, 2013

    I just reinstalled mylock box and got a new password so I get to use My Lockbox again. :) sweet!

    "Easy software"

    December 13, 2012  |   By hezzie43

    Version: My Lockbox 2.9.5

    Pros

    Very easy to use. Free. Does what it says it will do. Only takes one folder but that can be worked around by making up sub-folders for various files in one main folder.

    Cons

    Only takes one folder.

    Summary

    This program is quick, easy to use, no learning curve and free.

    "Great one folder locker."

    October 24, 2012  |   By klommler

    Version: My Lockbox 2.9.1

    Pros

    I works great! Locks folders and makes them disappear.

    Cons

    The only con is that it only locks one folder, not much of a con.

    Summary

    My Lockbox has worked perfectly since the first day that I loaded it. All updates went in without a hitch.

    "Avoid like the plague!!!"

    September 30, 2012  |   By ReigningChaos

    Version: My Lockbox 2.8.7

    Pros

    There are no pros to this!

    Cons

    There are only cons to this!

    Summary

    This software attracts viruses and malware like moths to a flame. Avoid at all costs. Try Axcrypt or Truecrypt if you need to protect files or folders on your computer.
