Editors' Review

The mere mention of encryption can evoke images of lonely geeks or government operatives hunched over their potentially earth shattering work. Discussions of public and private keys can send even experienced computer users into a fundamental state of distress, but it doesn't have to be that way. Advanced Encryption Package Professional is a tool that can, at the very least, ease some of the pain of working with encrypted messages and files.

The program itself is decent-looking but quirky. It has a theme engine that works well, though the existence of the theme engine is both welcomed and perplexing, as an app of this size should hardly need such a thing. The major features, such as Encryption, Decryption, and self-decrypting file creation work well, as do some unexpected features such as file Delete/Wipe, Zip management, encryption key management, and file e-mailing. There are better tools available than the included "Privacy Manager," but the Clipboard Encryptor is a great addition that complements the main program. The only actual error encountered was that a self-decrypting executable we created didn't delete itself as we specified after completing self-decryption.

There were no stability issues, and our testing never bumped up against the 30-day trial's functional limitations. Installation was easy, but it did create Start menu entries without asking, and uninstallation left behind theme-related folders and files in the install directory. Ultimately, if you use (or need to start using) encryption regularly, Advanced Encryption Package Professional would be a great tool to help make things just a little easier.
