For your own safety, please:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net

I created a test folder to lock to try this out end it locked fine. Unfortunately, when I tried to unprotect the folder, the program says the folder is unprotected, which I know is not the case because I can not enter the folder.

I plugged the source code into eclipse and before compiling I get this message on lines 2263 and 2285:
- Access restriction: The type 'BASE64Encoder' is not API (restriction on required library 'C:\Program
- Access restriction: The method 'CharacterEncoder.encode(byte[])' is not API (restriction on required
library 'C:\Program Files\Java\jre7\lib\rt.jar')
- Access restriction: The constructor 'BASE64Encoder()' is not API (restriction on required library 'C:
\Program Files\Java\jre7\lib\rt.jar')

any thoughts on what's happening here?
