Try out my program for me

  [DELETED] 00:10 22 Dec 2003

I have just finished a program that I have been making for quite a while.

It is a free file encryption program called The Lock, and works perfectly on my computer.

Could you try it out on your own computer, with a range of files? If you don't fancy risking any of your files, just create some copies of them so you don't destroy the original.

A full install/uninstall is supplied.

Martinsonline I clicked on your link and was greeted with so many pop-ups it kept me busy for a while closing them down. Think it may need adjusting a little, it could be off putting for the new user. :o(

Your download link is dead.

I suspect you have an incorrectly named file or have used spaces in the download name but not in the link.

You could also offer the download as a Zip file. It may or may not save on your bandwidth, but it will certainly help 56k dial up users download your program and some internet security software throws a fit when trying to download exe files.

Is the link working now?

Seems to work here (Opera).

There is no way I'm going to download this without clear instructions.

Click on the Download link
(this will download "The Lock Setup.exe")

Find and open the setup program, and full instructions are provided.
