Yes, a lightweight client like MultiBit
https://multibit.org/

The bitcoin-qt client download the whole blockchain wich takes a lot of time. But for normal users this isn't required, so you can just use a lightweight client  Smiley

There is a test version of MultiBit with encrypted wallets available (version 0.5.7beta) here:
https://multibit.org/releases/

It is not ready for general release but I must admit I use it with my real BTC.
Just make sure you keep your wallets backed up.
