Define "good."

For some, it may mean ease of use.

For others, it means that decryption can occur on Sun, Linux, Macintosh and other machines.

A recent passing of a relative found they had encrypted the hard drive which held not only financial records, but scans of family documents, pictures and more. My advice for that relative is to get a forensic expert on it and not to diddle with it since they think there are some accounts "out there" to be found.

Anyhow, fill in the definition since there are dozens out there.

I'm just looking for a good program to mask or lock CD's and files where it would not be that easy to get into them.

Maybe with ease use would be fine.

What do you think is a good program?

With just that much of a definition, PKZIP the files toa .ZIP with a password and put it on the CD.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
