    BEWARE!!! Like many have said before THIS IS SCAMWARE!!!! My files got locked after the trial run out and I had to buy the program to unlock them. I got in touch with Plimus who deal with all of Instant Lock's payments (through my credit card company) and Instant Lock via Plimus gave me a 10 cent credit and Bullsh*t about all questions being answered in the FAQs - which they aren't. I then got back in touch with Plimus and got my money fully refund. If you have been scammed get in touch with Plimus too... Pretty soon Plimus will realise what SCAM mongers this lot are!!!!

    I'm scared of this program, but lucky for me.
    I have installed this Instant Lock 3.0.7 program. Initially, I attempted to research a lot of freeware, and actually installed Folder Protect 1.0. But that didn't work well, I can't use that program, it kept saying incorrect password, even it was correct password. So I uninstalled it and provided the password, it took ok, then I re-installed it, but I still can't use it. So, I searched more, and found this "FREE" Instant Lock program. I installed, and have been using it for 3 days...I actually liked and was going to pay for it. But something really fishy bout this, when purchasing it, it made no mention about how much it costs. The first page was already asking for my credit card, then the submit button. After I submitted it, it response with an invoice of 69 British Pound, which about $140...Wow!!! I was very upset, I smelled somethinbg very fishy bout thiss. So I immdeiately requested the refund of my purchase, and will not try to use the code supplied for the full version. Thenn I decided to research more... And, wow, I found this area. I appreaciated you guys voice your alerts of this malware...I will un-install it before it expired and I would be stuck with it... Thankss.

    Dont download dont install dont buy - Mal ware
    DON'T DOWNLOAD, DON'T INSTALL DON'T USE BEWARE THIS IS MALL WARE and it will hijack your files I have downloaded the software and installed it on my system, i have used with no major issues until the trail period expired then the software had locked and my files kept hidden with no ability to get them back until i pay for full version no option to uninstall or get your files back, this is a scam practice more then that i could no longer uninstall the software, it is using a hijacking technique exactly like ad ware and spy ware. needless to add that I was able to find my files in no time with little digging on my drive and using the same manual methods that I use to remove Hijackers i was able to delete the scam software from my system.

    This program is crap!
    Recovering the files from Instant Lock is trivial. (The following experience was based on XP but I don't expect it to be very different on Vista.) The files are not really encrypted (or "protected" for that matter). They are simply moved to a hidden folder on the same disk. For example, on the D: drive of an XP machine, a folder originally named D:\001 is simply moved to D:\Volume Information\ ?0d? .{00021401-0000-0000-C000-000000000046}\5944379684381203.{9E56BE61-C50F-11CF-9A2C-00A0C90A90CE}\001 Note your particular path name will vary, and also note the path name contains funny characters. (The "Volume Information" folder is a hidden folder so you need to turn on the Windows Explorer "Tools -> folder options -> view -> hidden folders and files" to see this folder.) The "Volume Information" folder also contains a lot of other gargabe. A quick way to tell whether the "Volume Information" folder is of interest is to look at its size by right-clicking it and looking at its property. An easy of way of listing the full content of the "Volume Information" folder is to use the Unix-like utilities from Cygwin. Install Cygwin. (Google for "cygwin".) Pop up a DOS window. cd into D:\"Volume Information". type "c:\cygwin\bin\ls -lR|more". Keep hitting the space bar to see more. This will perform a full recursive listing of the entire directory content. From this directory listing, you can tell whether your stuff is in there and then simply use Windows Explorer to copy or move the actual data back to a normal place. On a personal note, I'm posting this because I'm disgusted by the slimy tactics of the makers of this crappy software. They deceptively use a "free download" slogan to entice people to use it, and once they have hidden away users' data and the "trial period" has expired, they hijack your data for ransom. Let's not even mention the fact that the simple moving and renaming of a "protected folder" offers zero protection---all the so-called "protected" files can be easily discovered and recovered by the simplest browsers. The dumbest user can accomplish the same by simply cutting and pasting the files into the "Volume Information" folder (or any other place) by hand!

    I downloaded and installed this product. Seemed OK, but the trial period lapsed (I moved across the country with a 10 m/o baby during the holiday season--a bit distracted). Now, my files are locked, the program won't launch, it won't uninstall, and they provide NO tech support to unregistered users. I will have to pay the full purchase price to get my data back, then uninstall and use LockeFolder XP, a far better product.
