Description by the Software Developer: "You probably know that you need a firewall program to use the Internet safely. In addition to protecting you against attacks from the Internet, a good firewall will also tell you when programs installed on your computer are trying to phone home and enable you to prevent them from doing it.
This is something that Windows own firewall doesnвЂ™t do, and itвЂ™s essential for identifying and stopping the activities of many malicious virus and spyware programs. For example, this enables you to prevent your system from being turned into a вЂњzombieвЂќ controlled by destructive hackers or spammers. "

Description by Software Developer: "Kruptos 2 is a very easy-to-use and powerful 128 bit file encryption utility that allows you to secure any sensitive files stored on your PC or portable storage device. Kruptos 2 includes a powerful file shredding utility, and the ability to generate self-decrypting files. Kruptos 2 currently works with the following versions of Microsoft Windows (2000/XP/2003 Server) and with all known file types.
Features and benefits: quick to download, simple to install, very easy to use and 100% free. Ideal for secure transportation of files on potable storage devices, such portable hard drives, USB storage keys.
Kruptos 2 uses windows explorer plug-in which allows you encrypt/decrypt/shred using the power of standard Microsoft Windows Explorer. It integrates into Windows Explorer and allows you to work with your important files using Explorer's context menu. You can even decrypt a file and have Kruptos 2 automatically open it and then re-encrypt it when you have finished editing the file, all with a single button press!
With Kruptos you can produce self-extracting encrypted files. Self-extracting files are executable programs (EXEs) that contain encrypted files and the software necessary to decompress the contents. Users can decompress the contents of a self-extracting file simply by running it like any other program. All that is needed is the correct password.
Kruptos 2 allows you to thoroughly delete and remove files and all their traces from your drive in a secure way via "Shred", so they cannot be recovered by common undelete tools.
Are your filenames sensitive? With Kruptos you can obfuscate (disguise) the filename when you encrypt the file, what's more you can view the original filename at any time by simply clicking on the file and selecting: view original filename.
Do you easily forget your passwords or have too many to remember? With Kruptos you can simply enter a password hint when encrypting your files, this hint can then be retrieved simply by right-clicking the file and selecting: View Hint."
