    For file compression, I recommend looking at the zlib compression library.
    Below you will find, links to the library. There are wrappers for the api.
    Let me know if you need more help with it.

    For the encryption, I would look at a book. It is an excellent book. It
    comes with source code that wraps the CryptoAPI into a nice useable ActiveX
    Dll.

    Title: Cryptography for Visual Basic: A Programmers Guide to the Microsoft
    CryptoAPI.

    Publisher: Wiley

    I hope this helps.
