Is there a way that I can encrypt files other then documents on my computer without using a second party software program?

Question about True Crypt: If someone has created the encryption software, wouldn't they have the ability to decrypt information if they ever got a hold of my encrypted information?

TrueCrypt can utilize strong encryption algorithms:

This means that it would be just as difficult for the programmer to decrypt your information as it would be for anyone else; provided they don't have your keys of course.

I am very interested to learn about computer encryption, I would like to check it out for any similarities I have observed in other encryption processes. Where is the best place to get started to get a good information on this subject?

Thanks,
Jozen
