How to encrypt your files with File Encrypter!
Step 1
There are many ways to encrypt files with File Encrypter, but this will show you the standard way, firstly you will need to launch File Encrypter, to do this simply click on:

Windows XP
Start -> All Programs -> nbsoft -> File Encrypter -> File Encrypter

Windows 9x/NT/2000
Start -> Programs -> nbsoft -> File Encrypter -> File Encrypter

Once File Encrypter is running, you will then need to add the files you wish to encrypt to the list, you can simply drag 'n' drop your files from Windows Explorer onto the list (Figure 1a), or select "Open" from File Encrypter's toolbar.


(Figure 1a)

Once you have added your files to File Encrypter, the list should look similar to this:

 

Step 2
Now you will need to define a password to which the files will be encrypted, please enter a memorable password as you will need it to decrypt the files, nbsoft cannot be held responsible for your password!

 

Step 3
You will now need to choose whether you are trying to encrypt or decrypt your files, in this example we are encrypting the files, File Encrypter will not allow you to encrypt files that have already been encrypted in File Encrypter before, the same goes for decrypting files that haven't already been encrypted.

 

Finish
Your files have now been encrypted with 256-bit encryption, to open the files you will need to decrypt them first, simply repeat the process but select decrypt at step 3. You will notice that the icon and extension of the file will change to .enc, this allows you to easily identify your encrypted files, you can of course rename them to anything you like and can remove the .enc extension so they look like normal files, to view the .enc extension you will need to disable "Hide extensions for known file types" in Windows Explorer Folder Options to do this simply:
1. Open Windows Explorer
2. Click on Tools -> Folder Options
3. Click on the View tab
4. Uncheck "Hide extensions for known file types"
5. Click OK
