SecureTrayUtil v3.95.0

Vista / Win2k / Win7 / Win98 / WinME / WinXP
SecureTrayUtil is a tool for the system tray in Windows that provides quick access to security and encryption tools / systems.

The menu provides allowing hotkey shredding files, file hashes to be generated, and complementing several OTFE (On-The-Fly Encryption) systems by providing rapid access to their most used day-to-day functions, making them considerably easier to use.

The utility also incorporates self-destruct facilities for sensitive material, triggerable by hotkey, easily-built serial connector or secure Internet connection.
