    Hi James,

    I think that the encryption is the new version of SanDisk?............. like I have seen older ones on sale for the price of a six-pack

    In answer to the other part of your question, they will work if you can access a USB drive. You do NOT NEED autorun to be activated, which it should not be on a restricted system.

    If you cannot do someone any good: don't do them any harm....
    As long as you did this to one of these, the least of my little ones............you did it unto Me.

    Not to mention google.
    Quitmzilla is a firefox extension that gives you stats on how long you have quit smoking, how much money you\'ve saved, how much you haven\'t smoked and recent milestones. Very helpful for people who quit smoking and used to smoke at their computers... Helps out with the urges.

    Yeh i've seen irongeeks tutorial on truecrypt, and he says you do need admin privillages to open truecrypt on a remote computer. Anyway i've ended up insalling Cruzerlock2 on my USB Drive. It works great , but i haven't been able to test it out at college yet. I couldn't find any info in the search facilty about encrypting usb drives, just cds.

    Hey speaking of USB storage.. How do you disable something like that? Cause people can just walk by your computer, insert USB device, hijack info and leave in like 3 minutes.
