Free open software, that encrypts files using open pgp?

Q: Free open software, that encrypts files using open pgp?

I am searching for recommanded free open source software, that handles open pgp encryption.
I do not know what to call the software, so instead I will describe it.

I am looking for software, that can make open pgp keys, import public keys, and encrypt and decrypt open pgp encrypted files. Not as part of an email client, like thunderbird and enigmail.
If you fx have received an open pgp encrypted file, encrypted using your own public key, you
should be able to decrypt the file.
Same way, you should be able to open pgp encrypt a file on your computer, using an imported public
key, and then send the file.
Like axcrypt, but using open pgp keys.

Thanks.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hello Vipomorge,

Downloading and merging the exe option in the tutorial below may be able to fix this for you. It will restore the default associations for exe files.

Default File Type Associations - Restore

In addition, I would recommend to do a full scan of your system with Malwarebytes free just to help make sure that your system is clean.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

As you are saying the softwares are not installing properly, might be the chances you are downloading the old version of softwares which have compatibility issues with the WIN 8

WHAT YOU CAN DO IS FIRST OF ALL DOWNLOAD THE LATEST VERSION OF SOFTWARES
THEN RIGHT CLICK ON THEN TO INSTALL & CLICK ON TROUBLESHOOT COMPATIBILITY.

Hi all, I'm new here and sure could use some help. Somehow I was infected with a nasty virus, but I think I managed to clean it up, or at least I think so. However, now I cannot do many things on my computer. I can't upload files to email, I can't change the wallpaper or screensaver on my computer, I can't open any .exe files, and most programs will not open.

I've tried many internet searches for these problems and tried to run various scans and registry fixes, but nothing seems to work. I'd really rather not use the repair install cd but I'm afraid I might have to.

So, it seems to me that files are corrupted and something is blocking me from using my computer. It is very frustrating and I could sure use your advice. Thank you.

I had started a thread earlier here, called "Cannot change name of New Folder. Can't add Search Provider".

Well, I reset the system to a System Restore that was quite old, and the renaming of folders problem seems to have gone away (at least for now). However, what is really bothering me is that IE11 is keeping track of every file I open on my computer, and when I click on the entry in History, it opens the file!

I have disconnected the computer from the internet, but desperately need help in terms of what to do!!!

WOw. Weird problem going on here. I have no idea what may have caused this, but anyway, basically what is happening here is that now whenever I double click a music file from my "my music" folder nothing happens. It goes to the little hourglass thingy like its thinking for a split second and then nothing happens. The file won't open.

So this was pissing me off. I have no idea why I can't open my music files in a simple manner any longer.

The other thing is that they will open fine if WMP (my default player) is already open. If WMP is just sitting there in the background and I double click an audio file it opens without a problem, but if nothing is open and I double click on an MP3 it does nothing.

What's Going On Here???

If you have the installation CD for the operating system try doing a repair installation. This will not affect your data.Boot the computer from the XP CD. You may need to change boot order in the BIOS so that the CD-ROM is the first device in the boot order.When you see the "Welcome To Setup" screen, you will see the options below This portion of the Setup program prepares Microsoft Windows XP to run on your computer: To setup Windows XP now, press ENTER. To repair a Windows XP installation using Recovery Console, press R. To quit Setup without installing Windows XP, press F3.Press Enter to start the Windows Setup. To setup Windows XP now and Repair Install , press ENTER. You do not want to choose "To repair a Windows XP installation using the Recovery Console, press R.Accept the License Agreement and Windows will search for existing Windows installations.Select the XP installation you want to repair from the list and press R to start the repair. If Repair isn't one of the option end the installation, this will mean that you will need to do a fresh installation of XP.The repair will copy the necessary files to the hard drive and reboot, the repair installation will continue after the reboot.

Hello lawrance,
Generally this is my full I.E. Reset directions >>
This should be done with Internet Explorer open (even if you are having problems with it), not Firefox / Chrome or another browser.

Click Tools or the Gear icon at the top of the browser > Go down the list to click on Internet Options > Go across to the last tab that should be Advanced >  Click on Advanced and then Reset (near the bottom) > You should get a Confirm box pop up > Tick Delete Personal Settings and now Reset.
This last part may be where the infection changed things -
 
While there > Go back to Connections Tab, and down to LAN Settings. Open this and check that the only box ticked is Automatically Detect Settings, and untick any others. Click OK >Apply if you changed anything and OK again.
 
Back to the General Tab and make sure your Home Page is entered correctly in the box. Re-set it if not, clock Apply and OK to close out
Once the settings have all been reset, Close that box. Close any other open boxes. Now close I.E. and Reboot your computer.
 
Let us know if this helped -

Just as the title says. All my files and programs open in free textpad. I was writing a program earlier today and absent mindedly cliked ok to open in free textpad without read the other points of the message. I am now sure that one of these other points sais something like "make free textpad default for all applications" or something. I have tried everything i can think of without any success with one exception. I was able to run itunes normally after selecting programs>itunes>run miniplayer. Im not sure why this is, as when i run itunes, it opens in free textpad. By the way, i run windows seven on an inspiron 530.
I really need some help, please,

Thank you for any response.

A:Action center won't open, Internel Explorer only browser that will open, no MalwareBytes and RKill will not open

An update.

I've tried running MalwareBytes and RKill from a flash drive which is also not working. Windows also ends up unable to load, the startup repair runs and things work fine. Not long after Windows tries to update and then it becomes unable to load again and the startup repair runs again.

I tried running a registry fix for the .exe problem and I get an error stating that the registry is being used even when no programs are running and I am in safe mode.

Hope this information helps

On Monday one of my computers stopped being able to open any .exe files. They all open to the "open with" dialog box. This is a computer my roommates frequently use but none of them want to tell me what they did to infect it. It's probably a virus but I cannot run any anti-virus software or any anti-malware software to see what it is. I can't run the gmer application mentioned in the instructions but attached are the logs from the DDS application. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Any information regarding this virus? This new variant that is attacking people which is encrypting their data files? Does anyone have any clue how we can decrypt the information that uses the LATEST ransomeware? This is the one where it takes the bit count from the hard drive.More information can be found here.http://blogs.mcafee.com/mcafee-labs/ransomware-holds-up-victimsThe current “ransomware” campaign uses a novel approach to extort money from naive Internet users. Malware from cybercriminals infects personal computers by claiming to be a genuine Windows update. Once installed, this malware encrypts data on the hard drive and displays a message (see Figure 1) in German that translates to “Your system has been infected with a Windows Trojan encryption due to visiting pages with pornographic content and your data files are encrypted with AES 256-bit encryption algorithm” and asks the victim to pay 100 euros via a Paysafe or Ukash voucher number. These malware binaries spread through spam emails.

A:Can't open files, get "fseek failed on seek_set" when trying to open

Do you have a Windows disc or restore CD or anything you can use to boot the machine? If so I would boot and try scandisk. See if the file system is ok. If that checks out run a virus scan. Malwarebytes antimalware is optimal.

If no problems to that point I would run a diagnostic on the HD. It could be failing.

If you don't have any bootable media or another PC with internet access see if someone will burn one of those boot disks with virus scanners loaded.

Also it's always helpful to fill in system specs as it saves a lot of back and forth about what hardware you do or don't have etc..

A:selected "open with"and now all the files of that kind open that way

Right click the dat.reg.txt attachment below, select "save target as"
Save the file somewhere safe, eg. desktop

First, go to:
Control Panel -> Folder Options -> View tab
Make sure "hide extensions for known file types" is NOT checkmarked.

Now, right click the saved file,
select "rename"
Remove the .txt section at the end, so the file now becomes:
dat.reg

You should see the icon change to a Registry file icon.

Now simply double click this dat.reg file to merge it into your registry.

You may need to reboot for changes to take effect.

Sounds like you want a free utility to image your computer.

Check out Macrium Reflect Free or EaseUS ToDO Backup. I've used them both and both work well. I like EaseUs a bit better because it will do server OS's as well.

Hi,

I'm switching data from a PC to a iMac using the software package Move2Mac. Had some issues with the CD getting the software to open on my PC. Called support and they sent me another executable file. Downloaded and installed that. But still have the same problem.

When I double click the icon the program opens for about 2 seconds and then closes, or it does not open at all. Since I've had the same issue twice, once with the CD and once with the download so I'm pretty sure its something to do with the PC not letting the program run.

Any ideas?

A:OPEN SOFTWARE UPDATER?

OpenSoftwareUpdater.com is related to a Potentially Unwanted Program (PUP). Many programs, toolbars, add-ons/plug-ins, and browser extensions come bundled with other free third-party software you download from the Internet (often without the knowledge or consent of the user). In some cases, they may be included in Installers or Downloaders found at hosting sites such as CNET, BrotherSoft, Softonic, FreewareFiles and Tucows. These bundled packages, installers and downloaders can often be the source of various issues and problems to include Adware, pop-up ads, browser hijacking which may change your home page and search engine, and user profile corruption.
Many toolbars and Add-ons can be removed from within its program group Uninstall shortcut in Start Menu > All Programs or by using Add/Remove Programs or Programs and Features in Control Panel, so always check there first. With most adware/junkware it is strongly recommended to deal with it like a legitimate program and uninstall from Programs and Features or Add/Remove Programs in the Control Panel. In most cases, using the uninstaller of the adware not only removes it more effectively, but it also restores any changed configuration.
Also see this removal guide from Malwaretips.

Hello everybody

I just got a new laptop with Vista Home Premium. It's a Toshiba Satellite Laptop, Pentium (R) Dual CPU T2330, @ 1.60 ghz with 1.99 GB ram.

The only software I loaded was MapSource for my GPS. It loaded fine with the Key Code which I had. The problem is that when I click on the MapSource Icon, I get the following message:

"Access was denied when MapSource tried to read from registry. Please consult your system administrator and start MapSource again."

I can right click on MapSource and then run as Administrator using the user account control. A screen pops up and says, "Allow-I trust this program. I know where it's from."

It will then open up and run correctly. Does anybody know why I have to run through administrator and not just by clicking on the MapSource Icon.

Thanks for any help.

David

A:Have to Open Software through Administrator

As part of the security features of Windows Vista you may find when installing and/or event running software may require you to Right Click on the installation file and/or software icon, and Run as Administrator this is a normal feature of Vista and some programs require this.

Although, I would check you're not a Standard User instead of an Administrator. Control Panel>User Accounts and Family Safety>User Accounts, make sure this says Administrator.

Over the past month, my programs -- Office 2010, Quicken, etc. -- will no longer open on start-up. There are no error messages. Outlook, for example, will not open from the task bar or from within "programs" on the start menu. The Icon highlights and the "activity" circle shows, but then shuts down. The only way I can get them to work properly is to do a system restore. Conversely, IE 8 opens up and all of the Windows 7 O/S features work normally. It seems as though a link that connects my programs with the O/S fails to load. Is my problem unique? Can anyone help? Thanks in advance.

You could try restoring the default lnk and exe extensions from this tutorial see if that solves it first - Default File Type Associations - Restore
