Is there a way to encrypt C:\Users on Windows 7?

I've tried TrueCrypt with whole partition encryption and it doesn't work because I don't have 32kb free in my boot sector (Apple's Boot Camp I presume). I've created an encrypted module with the intention of mounting it on U:\ and have that be users, but I cannot configure system-favirotes mounts with TrueCrypt because of the same 32kb problem.

BitLocker is not an option because I don't have the hardware requirements.

Is there any other options? Would PGP Desktop work here?

No TPM? You can actually use BitLocker without a TPM. – Mark Johnson Dec 21 '09 at 22:28
    
    
Hey, Mark, you should put that into an answer, it seems like that's the solution. If you don't create the answer I'll do it myself but I think you deserve the credit. – Pablo Dec 22 '09 at 16:01
