Simple PGP Application

We have been using a PGP application for some time now and i am in the process of replacing the system.  The old system is a 2000 box and the new one will be XP Pro.

Of course this application works on windows 2000 but not XP :(

I have been through a boat load of PGP applications and i am looking for something simple and that doesn't cost a fortune.  All i need is to be albe to encrypt / unencrypt files.  My current application lets me do this by right clicking on a file and then selecting encrypt.

I would truly Appreciate any suggestions :)
