Question
What is the purpose of the "Shell Extensions" installation component?

Answer
The Shell Extensions component installs the SafeGuard LAN Crypt Explorer Extensions. SafeGuard LAN Crypt adds entries to the Windows Explorer which allow the initial encryption of files and directories, the explicit encryption/decryption of files and directories, and easy control over the encryption state of your data. These entries are displayed in the File menu and in the context menus of drives, directories and files. It also adds a tab 'Encryption information' to the Windows Properties page.
