Regarding your sub-folder within “C:\Program Files (x86)” you’ll need to follow the relevant instructions (being very careful to select yourself as the relevant user) and use the option “Replace owner of subcontainers and objects”. This will override Windows security and grant AxCrypt permission to encrypt the file/folder but it’s worth repeating: be extremely careful that you don’t encrypt critical system files.
