  1. Hi,

    Just wanted to share my experience with bitlocker. I have the following specs:

    i7 860 (quad core)
    8gb dd3
    NVIDIA geforce gtx 580

    My computer never had hang ups or issues until i started using bitlocker. Microsoft word crashed 4 times in a row when trying to save a file. But, it had *never* crashed in the year I've owned my computer. And multiple programs had issues with file access after it was turned on, so unless you have very sensitive data I would say don't use it!
