Hello Julio,

According to their website it works just fine with Windows 7.

Quote:
Folder Lock™ is a fast file encryption software that can also password protect folders, lock files, protect USB Drives and lock CD/DVDs. Works perfectly on all flavors of Windows 7, Vista, XP and 2000 (supports 64-bit OS as well).

Well, other than using the built-in file encryption in Windows 7 (same as Vista), there is the program My Lockbox.

Hope this helps.

the website is lying, my win7 crashes every time I try to uninstall it. it also occurs when I try to delete created lockers. so I have to delete the folder in program files and the shortcuts in start menu manually.

the lock bok works great, thanks. I love this forum, response quick. but why do we should spread rep to another member, if rep is valuable I don't want to give rep to anyone that don't deserve it.

You're welcome Julio.

Rep points is setup that way so that one member cannot give another member a rep point over and over in a row to abuse the rep point system by artificially bulding up one members rep points. You do not want to give rep points to someone that does not deserve them in order to be able to give more rep points to the original member later. That would just defeat the reliabilty and purpose of rep points, and would be considered abusing them. That would get a member banned.

I got the point. though I think it might be more effective if the rep system is like.. each member is allowed to receive maximum 1 rep from 1 user per thread, that might do.

Yeah, we tried that to. It was still abused, so we had to make it harder.
