I used to be very happy with this program until I found out that decryption wouldn't work with certain combination of file + password. Now I'm usig dscrypt instead. Worked like a charm so far.

Ikd999, which file would it not work with? i use picocrypt which is small & works , and also i use dscrypt as well. I haven't had problems with either program. (i must admit though, dscrypt is a friendly app to use.)

Why do I have to put in my password so many times? PicoCrypt fails.

So I cannot even download this app :(

Anybody else experienced the same? Any mirror? I really would like to download and try it... Surely a false positive!

You are stammering Monsieur.

@spicydog: ESET has long detected one of the installers on that site (dssfv_setup.exe) as a virus. I have notified them on a number of occasions that it is a false positive (based on scans of that file from Jotti's, and VirusTotal), but with no result. It would seem as though they have now blocked the entire domain. All you can do is to lodge a job with ESET support. The website hasn't been updated in a long time, but if the webmaster was still around, if you could get them to lodge a job as well, that would help.

(I no longer use ESET myself so the problem no longer affects me)
