  1. hi

    i am using win xp pro sp3, and i can't access the file encryption option's details.
    when i select it, the file gets marked as encrypted, but isn't really encrypted.
    there is a locked "Details..." button next to the encrypt checkbox. i can't unlock it.

    thanks in advance

    Reinstall Windows XP Pro. Fastest solution.

    So you do not want to try a complete reinstall?
