  My favorite is GPGShell, but it is not Opensource, and it has some
problems with Windows 7 (tools for the context menu are not shown). I
wish there was something with the same capabilities and multiplataform.

  GPGShell incudes several tools, GPGTray, which sits in the systray,
and can perform several tasks with things you have in the clipboard, or
with right-click allows you to launch other tools from GPGShell, or to
chose between pre-stored configurations for GPG (you can save several
versions of gpg.conf, and you can chose which one to use). GPGKeys is
the key management interfase, very good (but for some things you need to
know a few command line commands). GPGTools is the tool to work with
files, I never use it because of contextual menu (which works fine for
me, since I'm still using XP).
