    I am a new user but am having constant problems with the above.  Almost every time I try to do something, I get the above notice, even if I haven’t opened the file, which then prevents axcrypt working on the fily.

    For instance, just now I have 3 encrypted files I wish to decrypt.  I viewed one of them, but not the other 2, but it is generating the above message and so will not de-crypt them.  I have tried closing file explorer and opening it again, but this does not help.  This is totally putting me off using the software as I fear if I encrypt all my files I will never be able to de-crypt them again.

    Any advice?

    thanks very much
