If I were you Gary, and if it’s not too much of an inconvenience, I would strongly recommend using a proper password manager instead of relying upon an “old application” which stores your password in a file that can be opened and viewed in Notepad
KeePass is excellent, free and open source. It can also import most data types (so you don’t need to manually re-enter everything) and it encrypts your data as well as providing auto-complete functionality.
Another, although much more basic, password manager is Password Safe originally by Bruce Schneier – it’s also free and open source.
As Svante has mentioned it’s never a good idea to tamper with Windows permissions.
Back to your original question the instructions on the ‘Ten Forums’ would probably achieve your goal; there’s really no other way of bypassing Windows’ protection – it’s there for a reason and users are strongly discouraged from interfering with it.
Onto your other question I don’t believe AxCrypt 2 supports command line operation yet which would preclude you from making a batch file. Realistically your two options are therefore:
- Move your encrypted data file out of a system critical area of the hard drive
- Migrate your data into a modern, more secure application.
