    Encrypted file gets locked in a folder on Windows XP

    I have encrypted a file with Truecrypt on my PC running on Windows XP. It has moved into a folder named 755d3851e9b156252c7f93106a7e on the same drive automatically. Also, I am not able to revoke the permission of that file and move back the encryption. This issue started happening since installing a Microsoft update. How can I resolve this?

    Hello !!

    let me tell you that encryption is only a method to restrict the file to get opened by any unauthorised user.
    so,if you too unable to open the file than it is better for you to decrypt it.
    for this you have to go to properties of the files and at the general tab you will find an option for decrypt. just select the option and click ok >> apply.
    your file will be decrypted.

    also you can uninstall that particular windows update due to which this things has happened.
    for this do the following procedure :-

    1. go to start
    2. control panel
    3. programs and features
    4.there you will find windows updates option at the left pane
    5. select that and go inside it.
    6. select that particular windows update and uninstall it.
    7. reboot your system.
    now go to that denied file and do check its status.

    hope i am clear to you.
