Does anyone know of a free/cheap way to password protect/encrypt the data sorted on my USB drive.

Also I will be using my pen mainly in internet cafe's and have heard there are programmes that can be executed from a removable drive which will remove any trace of me / my data on the computer.

Any help much appreciated.
