@Justanotherpaul, 37 - Thank you very much for your help. I haven't entered the serial number but seems to work and Help=>About PowerKey=>License Type=>Persoanl License. So assume that is what to do and hope is activated.
Thanks a lot.

@Michael, 35. you don't run the .gcd file, activate.exe uses it, you don't. So you should be good to go, or else reinstall as administrator if the program isn't working for you now.

I NEED HELP,
I installed alright. Extracted all files to my Desktop. I ran activate.exe. It says successfully activated. I then ran activate.gcd and I coudn't open. My PC doesn't recognize .gcd file.
Please try to help me before the time expire for this application.
Many thanks.

@29 Plain old 7Zip can do this.

Just Right-click a file, select 7Zip "Add-to-Archive" function, then see encryption options in lower right of the box. If you tick "Create SFX archive" it will do just what you've asked for.

Note the "encrypt file name" option at the bottom.

Even AxCrypt would seem to be an unnecessary download.

OK, so I installed the trial and it works as advertised on my win2kpro laptop. The software (above in the description) says windows 95 and above which was why I decided to try this even though I do not actually NEED it, but the ACTIVATE.EXE file is NOT! I get an error saying the EXE is not a valid win32 application! Which is typical of a program needing XP or above. That said, I used the trial version anyway and noticed only one thing that I would have preferred to have, the ability to wipe slack space. It is one thing to wipe a file securely or the entire free space for that matter, but slack space CAN contain loads of data which you might not want other people to see. If I save a one byte file, a whole entire cluster is allocated and "used". Whatever was in that cluster before is still there, except for the one byte that I saved! Windoze does NOT overwrite the slack space, it just grabs at least one cluster and saves the actual bytes in the file. Cookies are notorious for this unintentional capture of old data since they generally are only a few bytes in size, with a large amount of slack space, depending on the cluster size. Otherwise, the program seems to do the job reasonably well. I concur that this type of application is a standalone which is not a good thing. I am bothered by a comment above regarding recovery from a failure. Having to jump through hoops by downloading the trial version and using THAT to recover the data after a crash seems a bit much. I did not see anywhere that this was a "portable" application that I could run from a USB drive, which means it is locked to the machine where installed, yes? Personally, I will NOT use a program which I cannot uninstall and reinstall anywhere, anytime, at my convenience. By the way, I encrypt my sensitive data with Pretty Good Privacy (PGP) and PGPDISK (the last totally free version with complete source code so you could compile your own executable was 6.01i before Viacrypt took over and locked up the DLL source code) and I use Norton Utilities to wipe free space AND slack space on a regular basis...

PGP is available here: http://www.pgpi.org

Does any one make software such as this that will produce an executable (.exe) file that can be copied to file archive sites and will upon execution ask for a password and then open to give me my data? That is what we need. This way you will not be forced to buy this software later if you have a crash and need to retrieve your data. Does any one know about a program that does this?

Installed and registered without problems on Win 7 64 bit.

I'm not really impressed. It boasts speed but actually it was slower on encrypting than TrueCrypt. Tested with about 400 MB of image files, the zipping took some 2 minutes and encryption another 1.5 minutes. That's about 1.5 minute slower than TrueCrypt. Unlike the statement on their site, the compression doesn't speed up things but slows it down. Obvious to me, as the data is processed twice and not once. Duh.

The password generator well, sucks. With an average NIST bit entropy of 30 (default settings) these passwords can be cracked in about 2 weeks at 1000 guesses a second on an average new home computer. Take a distributed network of thousands and it will take mere hours. Why not auto-generate passphrases? It's just as easy to implement...

They also say that It has in-built AntiPasswordSpy code which will remove the threat of your passwords being revealed providing you with a powerful shield against all key-loggers. But in the detailed description it says Another very useful feature is Anti Password Spy protection that prevents your passwords to be read from '*****' secretly. That's not the same. Reading a GUI control is one thing, logging keyboard strokes something entirely different. It just seems to transliterate some special keys like TAB to a printable character. Well, that's an extra layer of complexity but not impossible to reverse engineer. Also, if I hook into the keyboard directly and not the GUI control the protection fails. Still, nice feature.

The 'save password in image file' is also a nice feature. But why only support BMP? PowerKey uses steganography to embed the data, so theoretically it can support all image formats. You don't even need special image libraries, just open the file in binary mode and go for it.

the fastest work is achieved with the REALTIME PRIORITY, only note that such speed-ups usually slow down the work of other programs. That's the worst advice I've heared in a long time. It won't just 'slow down the work of other programs', it will very likely bork your system completely and BSOD on you at the end. CPU-intensive IO operations should never be run at realtime priority level. For this alone you are thumbed down.

Uninstalled. There's much better software in this category, both free and not free. Thanks anyway Elcor Software and GOTD.

PowerKey has an easy user interface. It has a strong password generator. The program itself is probably written with Borland Delphi or C++ Builder.
The option to drag a Folder in the listbox did not work. There is no option to compress a folder without password, a password is forced to compress files and folders.

PowerKey has a very good compression ratio to rival other commercial compression utilities.

I am a long-term user of 7Zip and DESlock+, PowerKey has potential despite its high price tag.

As alternative, I recommend free tools or OpenSource.

DESlock+ (proprietary) has a free personal edition which supports the creation of virtual disks with encryption, also self extracting archives and folder encryption
https://www.deslock.com/register.php

7ZIP - supports self extracting archives with encryption (OpenSource)
http://www.7-zip.org/download.html

DoktorThomas, I strongly have to agree with the Java issue.
If you can do without Java, uninstall Java, because it's the most exploited runtime environment at the moment and the threat level is VERY REAL. So don't take it lightly.

I absolutely agree with #21. people are way too slack with security. and no matter how you try to convince about online password storage and the like, i just cannot do that and sleep at night. very little time passes before you hear of another site broken into and passwords or private info stolen. and if programs try to pitch you to buy their wares and cannot spell correctly or have incorrect grammar, then how am i to trust them to put together a safe and secure program ...there are things like spell-checkers.

Giant thumbs down. Created self-extracting exe encrypted file. Upon click to open it, Avast popped up "memory could not be referenced..." and entire system (XP SP3) hung. Could not end exe process via Task Manager. Had to hit big red switch. Then program did not appear in Control Panel Add/Remove Programs list. Did basic uninstall via uninst.exe in PowerKey program folder. Then scanned registry to remove traces there.

Yes. As far as I can see all encyryption software has a built in snag in that even though they may use common encryption types, they aren't interoperable. If I give someone a zip file or a .doc they can usually get access with a compatible programme. But every encryption programme is in a silo. So stick with a common freeware item that anyone can get access to.

@13 Maureen - tens of thousands of PCs, passwords, accounts, personal data and important id numbers are compromised every day all over the globe. Just recently, half a million Yahoo and over 6 million LinkedIn accounts. Many people are unaware info's been stolen until a collection company calls or a loan's rejected or you're arrested for an outstanding warrant meant for someone else.
Packet sniffing, viruses, redirects, phishing, hacked web sites, malware like recent javascript exploits and even simple invasion of privacy by snoopy relatives and friends pose threats of one magnitude or another. Most PC users are woefully ill-informed and fail to practice even the bare minimum safe computing techniques.
Similarly, many don't keep an up-to-date Will, but by providing an attorney with certain info or by storing a list of passwords in a safe deposit box, you can keep info confidential while you're alive and accessible if you keel over. I know of several who combine encryption and stegonagraphy. They store private info on a floppy, CD and DVD - just several simple digital pictures into which bits (or rather bytes) of at the very least PGP-encrypted data are added. e.g., picture of safe contains wall safe combination, picture of a pc contains administrative password, picture of bank vault could have safety deposit box location(s), picture of island - offshore bank account number, etc. Next of kin get public keys.
I employ layers of encryption and steganography, extra strong passwords, keep anti-virus and free malware scanner defs updated weekly. [malwarebytes, spyware blaster, spybot, sophos, etc]
Nothing's perfect but layered security helps keep the gremlins at bay. Any file that gets flagged as a "virus" is immediately
run past VirusTotal.com. Nothing's more reassuring than running that weekly scan and getting a 100% clean score. Checking https://shouldichangemypassword.com/ every once in a while could be helpful, too.
FWIW, this vendor's folksy use of "fastly encrypt your files" and "cause now it’s safe" gave me pause. Not terribly professional sounding.

to Elcor Software
and all users of PowerKey

Again many thanks to Giovanni:
".. or at least to use the trial version of the program in order to retrieve your sensitive data."

Therefore if you want to use this software don't forget to download the trial at once!!! Sometimes downloads tend to be no longer available later on for different reasons.

But I haven´t verified if this trial works in this way!

Elcor Software should please answer to this problem.

Arnie,quote from description of My Lockbox, "My Lockbox is not serious security, as it does not encrypt files, but for average desktop users, it provides a solid privacy service. However, if government agents come knocking, looking for those secret extra terrestrial files you stole, you will be in trouble, and should have used an proper encryption application."

Giovanni,
Any program, whether security or otherwise, that employs java has risk problems, as java and flash have poor security track records. World IT needs to discover how to computer without these blundering scrips. So at least Professional Data Security 1.0 is off the usable alternative list, probably others mentioned share this gaff.

#13 If you have ever had your laptop stolen with sensitive data like bank or CC info or perhaps any new mobile device has been taken, you will appreciate this software.

I keep all my passwords in "All my notes" a freebee here which i later purchased. keeping all my personal account data in the directory and encrypting it on mobile devices is policy.

On a desktop it is less important.

If the anti brute force works it is superior as a stolen device's datastore would be secure.

Regarding passwords. Long multiple unrelated words are better than shorter alpha numeric against brute force. Easy to remember for example:

"Exhaustive window 53rd Street sumatra" beats out "whats4k9k9d?"

Many older OS don't handle this however it is good to know.

If it works on a mobile device like an iOS or W7 mobile to encrypt access to cloud credentials it's value is lifted.

How many of you on here had ANY folder or document compromised by the bad guys? I am old and don't know of anyone of my friends or relatives being hacked and allowing a computer file to be accessed. Worried about loved ones sniffing around for your financial information? Then use this. If you fall over dead on your keyboard, how does family access your folders or documents to handle your estate? Write down your passwords in a desk drawer for them to use in case of emergencies? Doesn't that defeat the use of this kind of software to keep from snooping eyes? I can open desk drawers and snoop myself.

Very good software with advanced features to protect your even from keyloggers. It can easily encrypt selected files & folders with the most secure crypto algorithms loke Blowfish, 3Des, Gost, RC2, Twofish etc... , as well as create strong password against any kind of brute force attacks uou may suffer.

The only problem is that if you lose the GAOTD key you need to buy a license or at least to use the trial version of the program in order to retrieve your sensitive data.

So for this kind of programs, my suggestion is to use FREEWARE and OPEN SOURCE software, most of which are as good as this GAOTD (or even better).

BEST FREEWARE ALTERNATIVES

* TrueCrypt
http://www.truecrypt.org/

* Axcrypt
http://www.axantum.com/axcrypt/

* (Portable) SafeHouse Explorer (==> Great for memory sticks):

The free version can even allow you to use your USB device as a smartcard ==> COOL!!

* dsCrypt
Terrific tool against brute-force password attacks
http://members.ozemail.com.au/~nulifetv/freezip/freeware/

* Toolwiz BSafe
Very effective and easy to use encryption app designed to protect your sensitive data in a very straightforward way: in short it creates a "virtual safe drive", using AES 256 encryption algorithm, which works just like a virtual drive once unlocked with the right password. Files within this "virtual safe drive" are instantly encrypted on-the-fly and when they are closed all virtual drives are instantly dismounted, leaving the "virtual safes" encrypted. So there is no way to retrieve your encrypted files & folders, unless you know the right passwords, of course. It also sports advanced protection options against hacking attacks, such as the ability to immediately burn all your inputted passwords in the RAM, so as to prevent any password hijacking attempt. Cool, isn't it??

http://www.toolwiz.com/products/toolwiz-bsafe/

* FreeOTFE Explorer
This is an awesome FREE highly PORTABLE disk encryption program for use with USB flash drives, enabling users to gain access on encrypted volumes even on Windows PC where this tool hasn’t been installed (i.e. in Internet Café). So it’s a perfect app for those people like me who love carrying their sensitive data securely on a USB drive or other removable media without any hassle. Cyphers include AES (256 bit), Twofish (256 bit), Serpent (256 bit) and even Blowfish (448 bit), a feature missing in most paid encryption software out there: COOL, isn’t it??

http://www.freeotfe.org/

* ComeiTool
Impressive little tool designed to lock and sync your folders or USB drives, as well as scan IP addresses!!! It can only unlock folders on the same PC and in the same directory, meaning if a snooper has managed to copy your locked folder to another PC, that folder cannot be unlocked even using this software.

http://www.mytikus.com/pc_tool_software.htm

* Professional Data Security 1.0
Very COOL FREE APPLICATION which includes Encryption, Key Management and a multi-window editor for personal data in one single package.
This tool allows users to carry sensitive data (account numbers, login credentials, etc.) on their thumbdrive, without the risk to be stolen should their thumbdrive be lost.

http://crypto.brettlee.com/

* DiskCryptor
It offers encryption of all disk partitions, including the system partition, with AES-256 algorithm in LRW mode

http://www.softpedia.com/get/Security/Encrypting/DiskCryptor.shtml

So as usual with Giovanni you can take your pick dudes....LOL!!

But how about hiding your important files in JPEG images, mp3, flv files and even into executable files (exe, msi) for FREE??

Apart from being closed-source, this lacks a key feature--automatic re-encryption. As usual, I recommend AxCrypt and TrueCrypt. While we're on the subject of security, people who don't know what they're talking about (I'd say much worse, but the moderators wouldn't allow it) are always falsely claiming all sorts of bad things about IE. Yeah, maybe IE 0.1 on Win95. Unusually, there really is a major IE security hole across the line except IE10 under Win8 preview. Pay attention:
Critical zero-day bug in Internet Explorer under active attack
Microsoft pledges temporary fix for critical IE bug under attack
Microsoft Security Advisory (2757760)
Enhanced Mitigation Experience Toolkit v3.0

I normally use IE9 with the Google Toolbar, that way I get the best of both worlds. A number of things about Chrome irritate me, including the fact that the code exists to support MHTML but Google won't use it. However, it has some nice features. Voice search can be used in a few places, such as Google search, Google Help search, and Google Maps. Desktop notifications can be used if Gmail is open in a tab. If you're willing to send your words to Google, the full power of Google spell checking and correction is available in web forms. MapGL can be used if your video card supports it.

Speaking of video cards, a number of us can only use single-slot cards, which are rapidly disappearing. A couple of nice options are single-slot versions of the GeForce GT 640 2 GB and the Radeon HD 7750 1 GB. If you're a gamer, go for the Radeon, otherwise it's a more complex decision. They both have hardware decode/encode with the right software (CyberLink always supports). The GT 640 has twice the RAM and is lower power. Its H.264 encoder is entirely separate from its CUDA cores, not sure about the Radeon, which has other cool features.

Windows 7 Pro
Two comments:

1. The UI presumes a 100% DPI setting. If you are 65 or over, you likely are using a 125% DPI setting which will hide part of the UI, and will make it difficult to use the program.
2. The executable (PowerKey.exe) contains the comment "Powerkey is a handy memory optimizing tool that will keep your computer running faster and efficiently". That comment shows when you single-click the PowerKey icon on your desktop. This garbage is part of the TweakRAM executable, by the same software company. Rather messy.

This looks like nice software but I have other programs for these purposes. For those that don't I would say to look over this offer as it appears to have all you will need. And if you are worried about your data if you need to reinstall, that should not be a problem. just go to this link and download the trial...

http://www.elcor.net/download.php

This will give you a working version that will function long enough for you to deal with your data.

As always, thanks go out to the GAOTD team for your efforts. And of course thank you to the publisher, Elcor Software, for your offering.

The GUI is very basic but functional, though the major concern (as with most that do the same thing) is in the event we do not have the software installed, such as in having to re-install Windows.

While I was initially drawn to the ability to save the password in .bmp files, this ultimately proves to completely pointless, because you still require the software active/installed in order to access it from the file.

If we could somehow acquire the password from the .bmp files independent from the software itself (which most wouldn't automatically think of checking and with the tens of thousands of bmp files I have anyway) it would have been a lot better.

Besides which there are countless free ones already, including TrueCrypt which I used to use but which I still highly recommend.

As much as I appreciate the very principle of giveaways for non-vital software like graphics, music or video editors, maintenance etc. I consider, when it comes to encryption or secured backup, it very risky to rely on a program we can lose in a system crash, involuntary update etc. unless we have acknowledged and accepted that we might be literally FORCED one day into buying it to retrieve our data. Why not? But it is something that must be kept in mind.

My concern about such software is what will happen when the software accidently removed or when it expires after a year or so?
I use truecrypt and lastpass for these purposes. What will be the other features in this software?
