I am looking for a program for Windows 7 which will encrypt files specified by me and allow me to view/edit/delete those files without creating a virtual disk. I do not want to have virtual disk as a domain administrator can access it so truecrypt is not the possibility.

One possibility is to use winrar with password protected archive but winrar serves a different goal so it is not very user friendly for this purpose.

If it's possible it would be nice if the program does not creates temp files while I open the files.

Any suggestions?
