For those of you who want to remove OpenCandy: Extract the Axcrypt Installer with OpenCandy Offer using 7-Zip. Open the folder and delete $PLUGINSDIR. This should remove the OpenCandy junk from the installer.

I'm sorry, but there is no way I can recommend use of anything contained within an OpenCandy adware wrapper. I don't care what the publisher says, the OpenCandy adware connects to an outside server and exchanges data with it. What data? We have no way of knowing--OpenCandy is not an open-source program, so we can never really be sure. Even if the adware isn't evil, what if the OpenCandy servers are compromised? Could the attacker plant a harmful payload to be served to unsuspecting users? Combine this with the fact that installers run with elevated privileges and you have a disaster just waiting to happen. If the publisher gave us a choice, adware or non-adware, I might feel differently. Since they don't, there is no way I can recommend this package in its current state, nor will I allow it to run on systems over which I have control. Perhaps the best choice would be to fork it and offer a truly free version. Very sad. Update (2014-01-16): It seems AxCrypt package has not been updated in almost three years, which I find a little disconcerting.

I once messaged the creator of AxCrypt and he was delighted that I compared it to PGP! Sad, really! This is just another example of how once trustworthy, simple programs turn into questionable installations and lose their value! If it was not broken, it should never have been mended! Also, the EyeCandy involvement has forced our favouring of the side of caution, all over the world! I used to use nothing but AxCrypt, but I am in the process of switching all old .axx files into another encrypted format. Goodbye, AxCrypt...I will readily mourn your passing...from the best of the best, to the most suspicious! A tragedy!

Had a small problem, but overall this is probably the best encrypter. I don't use it daily, as it's a lot of time spend, encrypting to de-encrypting something. - but it works. I just had to re-install Axcrypt, because to of my files were still in .axx file.

This crooks! They write here that the GNU GPL program, and she asks for mandatory activation! Clever! The source code is published, but there are no important files, so to compile it from the binary file is not possible. Therefore, this program under the GNU GPL will only have to buy.

What a joke. The trial version is so limited I could not even evaluate its effectiveness. No way I would purchase this even for 25.00 without knowing if it works. Thanks for nothing.

They are crooks! They violate the terms of the GNU GPL License! The new version 2.1 requires activation and without activation works 30 days !!!!
