Thanks for your insights, Timo.  
Following your advice, i have downloaded winpt
v.1.0.1, but i don't know how to install it: there is
no tool for uninstalling my current version separately
from gpg4win.  What are the steps for updating winpt
to the newer version and can it be done without
affecting the current gpg installation?

Trying to use this feature with different windows now:
IE - no luck, but i guess it should not be ever
TB compose window, triggered by clicking 'mail' in IE
- it works. I wonder, why it should not work in
_the_same_ kind of compose window, but triggered by TB
itself (!!!)
Notepad - the same error message it gave when trying
to encrypt from TB. When the compose window triggered
by IE was still open, it tried to encrypt that
instead, although the current window was notepad.
MS Word - does not work either
I can't think of anything else that i might want/need
to use it with.  
Well, using IE each time i want to encrypt the current
compose window does not seem like a valid option to
Although, the clipboard encryption option works fine.

Looking forward to any further insights,
