How can I get the Registered version of Encryption Protection?
If you have the evaluation copy of Encryption Protection already installed on your system, please click the “Register Now” button in the middle left side of the Encryption Protection application after having used up all of your free trial sessions. Or at any time prior to that, you can hit the 'Register Now' button. You can also visit the link here to buy your copy of Encryption Protection Application.
 
What file extension will the encrypted file have when it is saved on the hard disk?
The file extension that this the encrypted file will have is the filename along with its extension and ".epf" is included as a postfix to the complete file name. For Example, if you are encoding a file named "Test.txt" and saving it on your Hard Disk, the encoded file name would be "Text.txt.epf". On the other, if you  are making a self-decrypting file, the file extension saved on the hard disk will have "Test.txt.exe". which on clicking will ask for the key and then will decode it. 
 
I can't decode a binary file or message with a long key (e.g. a sentence) It always comes back with 'Invalid Key' using the same key I have encoded it with.
Have you made sure that the key phrase you have used to encode the file is ABSOLUTELY equal to the key phrase you are trying to decode it with? Remember, every character is case sensitive, and the amount of spaces between characters counts just as well. Moreover the size of the key should always be of exactly 32 digits.
 
I have downloaded Encryption Protection and it doesn't install properly.
Have you encountered any problems during the download of Encryption Protection before? Make sure that the size of the setup-file downloaded is equal to what is stated on our download page. Some Internet browses will fail to download a file completely without actually reporting an error. Have you used any "download accelerators"? If so, download a copy of Encryption Protection (without using any download-enhancements) again.
Make sure your operating system is up-to-date, check whether all service packs / critical updates Microsoft has released so far are installed on your PCs. To do this, select Start --> Windows Update. If your PC is lacking a lot of those updates, you probably will need to go through this updating process several times.
Before installing Encryption Protection, make sure all other applications (that may be running) are turned off, especially your virus shield (if any), your Real Player, Windows Media Player, ICQ, a quick launch of Netscape, turn them all off. Take a look at the small icons on the right side of the lower task bar of your Windows desktop to see which applications are running. To check what applications might be running in the background you are not even aware of, hit CTRL, ALT and DELETE at once. If necessary, delete every single application manually (except for "Explorer").
 
If I choose to open an encoded Encryption Protection file from my Desktop and I do not have  Encryption Protection software installed on my system, how do I open the file?
Even if you do not have an Encryption Protection Application installed in your system and you want to decode an encoded file, don't panic. You can do the decoding in two ways.
If the target file is an encrypted .epf file then open the link http://encryptionprotection.com/online.htm. Download the FREE decoder program and then install it on your computer. Follow the instructions and It will allow you to decode any .epf file you have or may receive in the future.
If the target file is an encrypted .exe file then simply click on the file, feed in the key and press the “OK” button. The file is automatically decrypted.
 
Can an Encryption Protected file be cracked?
No, an Encryption Protection file cannot be cracked under any conditions.
 
What do you mean by the term Encryption level up to 448 bits?
Encryption Level up to 448 bits means that we are using the bit stuffing of up to 448 bits in the process of encryption. Moreover it allows the optimal encryption speed. This application uses all the symbols whose ASCII value lies between 1- 448 and encrypts your file so thoroughly that  no one could decipher it.
 
I am a Graphic Designer and I would like to know if my Flash file can be encrypted?
Yes, the Encryption Protection Application allows you to encrypt any type of file(s). It is accurate enough to encrypt an .exe file. It not only encrypts a file but also retains their format and on decryption you’ll get the exactly the same format that you had encrypted.
 
Can Encryption Protection encrypt folders?
The Encryption Protection Application is capable of encrypting a batch of files within a folder in a single run and packs them into a single secured file. Go to the tab “File Encoder” add a list of files that you want to encode. Provide a destination location to store the encrypted file(s) and click the button “ENCODE”. The file(s) will be encoded with a single key value. In the same way you can decode a batch of files (provided they have the same key value) from the tab “FILE DECODER”.
 
Is it necessary to have a key of exactly 32, 48, or 56 characters long?
Yes it is requirement to have a key of exactly 32, 48, or 56 characters long. The functionality of the application is maximized under these conditions.
 
Is EP able to encrypt images or objects contained in a .doc file?
If an object, picture or an image is depicted within a MS Word document, or in any other file of a word processing application, it gets encoded automatically once the document is secured by EP. When an HTML-file is secured by EP and the actual picture is located somewhere else, the application will encrypt its link only and not the picture. For encrypting the pictures, you need to encrypt the pictures separately.
 
How do I update my EP installation?
First of all, you can update EP for up to one year at no further cost to you.
Download the latest version of EP from our free trial page of this website.
Un-install your old version of EP (if any). To un-install it, select "Start" --> "Setting" --> "Control Panel". In the "Control Panel" open "Add / Remove Programs" and pick Encryption Protection. If you are asked whether shared files should be deleted, choose "Yes".
Close all programs (and we mean ALL of them, especially your virus shield, your email client, any media player, and so on. The install is likely to fail if other applications are kept running). Press CTRL+ALT+DELETE to check what applications are currently running.
Double-click on the new setup file and follow the instructions.
 
What is the maximum limit of files/folders I can shred in a single go?
You cannot shred more than one file at a single go. Folder shredding is not permissible. Although you can select each file from the folder and shred them individually.
 
Can I email the self decrypting .exe file as an attachment?
Yes, you can, but we recommend that you zip the self decrypting .exe file(s) before sending them via email as many email services do not allow sending plain .exe files. Also save the key as a file and include it in the attachment. The self decrypting .exe file will allow you to browse for the key file so you will not have to send the key as a regular text file. 
 
How much time does encoding a file take?
It is really difficult to predict the amount of time it will take for encrypting a file. Time taken for the process of encryption is totally dependent on the size of file to be encrypted.
