connection. You need to keep your PC clean from any type of keylogger and malware. Encrypting should help to keep private. Use strong passphrase when encrypting and keep your encryption software up-to-date. If there's vulnerability in encryption software, be aware of the work-around.
Virus and Encrypted files: You need to use strong passphrase that no other person or not done by any application. That will be hard for virus or malware to crack but if the virus/malware affects the system e.g. Gpcode.ak virus then your encrypted files is affected unless you able to recover from the virus.
Store the encypted files in safe location.
Just as subject questions, does file encryption protect files against keyloggers?
I have the best antivirus, and I recently got truecrypt.org's encryption software. Encryption is the safest defense in the world of file protection. I see it protecting against all viruses except for keyloggers. Keyloggers record key strokes, so it would seem the file encryption is useless seeing it's password protected, and all a keylogger has to do to get by the dynamic gold standard file security is wait until you type in your password. Sure I am very careful with what I download, I run file scans, but should I ever get a keylogger, does encryption protect my files?
Also more importantly and broadly, just how great does encryption protect my files against viruses? Does it protect against all viruses? If not, please briefly explain.
