    Since you say you want to encrypt a few documents on the CD, I have to also ask which OS are you using?

    I can guess at a Windows machine though.

    You CAN password protect a document in Word (you can encrypt also). Do this...


    When you go to SAVE a document, click on SAVE AS..

    Then, in the new window, in the upper right corner should be a TOOLS drop down menu.
    click on TOOLS then Click on SECURITY OPTIONS (this may be different with a differnet version of WORD, I have 2003 installed on this box). You can password protect the document. You can put one password to view and a different one to edit.

    In Word 2003, you can also click on the ADVANCED button and choose differnt type of encryption and key lengths.

    NOTE: if someone can view, but not edit, they may be able to copy/paste into a different document.

    good luck.

    Password protect word documents! hah thats laughable, of course you can but its weak so i wouldnt bother

    try pgp or the gnu version gpg -

    http://www.gnupg.org/(en)/download/index.html

    its free to download and good for exchanging data like I assume you are going to with your CD??

    OS isnt important with gpg becuase theres ports to most OS's

    I mean, you can read the info on the cd but you cannot take a file from cd and paste on HD.

    I ve been made cd with cdlock and cryptcd but the info is easy copied to HD uncreypted.

    there is no way.

    If it is on a cd and readable then it can be moved to the HD. The trick will be making it as difficult as possible. I mean honestly, if there was a way to do this dont you think it would be on every cd and dvd out there.

    I am with XTC46 on this one, you just cannot stop it being copied, that is why we have software and entertainment piracy.

    The problem is that you can encrypt and password protect the presentation but no-one would be able to look at it without the key and the password..................and as soon as you give them those, it can be copied.
