try Truecrypt - http://www.truecrypt.org/

From the website

Main Features:
    * Creates a virtual encrypted disk within a file and mounts it as a real disk.
    * Encrypts an entire partition or storage device such as USB flash drive or hard drive.
    * Encrypts a partition or drive where Windows is installed (pre-boot authentication).
    * Encryption is automatic, real-time (on-the-fly) and transparent.
    * Parallelization and pipelining allow data to be read and written as fast as if the drive was not encrypted.
    * Encryption can be hardware-accelerated on modern processors.
    * Provides plausible deniability, in case an adversary forces you to reveal the password:
      Hidden volume (steganography) and hidden operating system.

it is Free.
it will run from the USB drive, and them mount your encrypted data, and aftewards make it available for the user. So yes, it will run first before you can actually read / write anything.
