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.

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 !!!!

Great peace of software. Waiting to see AES 256 (128 too short for serious information) and maybe implementation of Towfish/Serpent algorithms.

Great software offering! Like skydynasty stated, the Open Candy software is totally avoided by following the instructions in the post (06/03/2013). There are 32 & 64 versions, each shown when extracted with 7zip. Good Alternative to TrueCrypt, at least as far as ease of use for newbies are concerned. Cat
