Hello guys,

After trying Okoker Encypt Folder Ver 1.2, I can't access/decrypt a folder in My Documents which I encrypted earlier with Okoker Encrypt Folder software Ver1.2. What happened is that after I installed normally the software, I encrypted a particular folder in My Documents to try out this software "speciality" but unfortunately, when I tried to decrypt the same folder, the program crashed. When I saw this I panicked and uninstalled immediately the program deleting also any remaining files in the folder.

When I installed the program again and tried to decrypt the same problematic folder, the program is popping out 4 messages saying access violation, referring to certain addresses and locations in the memory. As a result I'm stuck and don't know what to do at this point. I even tried to do a system restore to a time before I installed the Okoker Encrypt folder software and also booted into safe mode but couldn't remove the encyption in anyway.

Would someone please tell me what can I do at this stage to solve my problem?

I thank you in advance for your help.

Regards,

Corolla

Usually when you encrypt something with a certain program, you need to decrypt it with that same program and make sure no changes happened to the program in the mean time. You uninstalled/deleted the program, then reinstalled it... in a way that's telling Windows that its got a different version of that encryption program. Even if it's the same version, the encryption key got changed.

So the only way around it, as far as I know, is to delete the whole folder. If there were an easier way around it, the encryption program wouldn't be of much use.

And next time test it out on a folder you made yourself, one that you can lose.
Maybe that you can roll back Windows?
