Editors' Review

+

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.

"Pointless waste of disk space"

January 22, 2013  |  By tone-controller

 |  Version: MyWinLocker 4.0.14.29

Pros

Didn't cost me anything - came with my Acer Revo

Cons

Everything else. I didn't need it on a media PC, and removing it (after discovering that you have to tick the boxes in the "Install" window that appears in response to the "Uninstall" request!) freed up valuable space, and allowed the PC to run faster, as it seems the MyWinLocker processes are always running.

Summary

May be useful to some people, but to me just a waste of space that was awkward to delete.

"Major Flaw"

January 03, 2012  |  By stavcat

 |  Version: MyWinLocker 4.0.14.29

Pros

Easy to use

Cons

When you encrypt any file it makes an unencripted copy and leaves it in the c/users/user/appdata/local/temp/mywinlocker

Making this application pretty much useless? Strange they overlooked this? Prob why its free on win7

"disgusting software"

August 01, 2011  |  By cnetwatcher1

 |  Version: MyWinLocker 4.0.14.29

Pros

not that I know of

Cons

they made it very difficult to remove from the computer. They force you to have it, they force you to like it, they force you to pay for it, and they force you to waste your time dealing with it.

Summary

people playing ugly tricks like this should not stay in business.
