Truecrypt development ended in May of last year - the developers don't recommend it's use anymore as it is no longer updated.

I would suggest booting in safe mode and uninstalling the application if possible.  If not, restore from a previous restore point.

Okay so far so good. What do the experts recommend as a good replacement for Truecrypt?

BitLocker comes with windows and is suggested by the Truecrypt team.  They posted instructions on how to install and migrate current Truecrypt drives.

I think there is no security problems with TrueCrypt. You may use AxCrypt , BestCyrpt or PGP
