how does this american english guy
turn off encrypting if i did it but dont want anymore
Sadly once encrypted you can only change the password.
Your one option is to send the coins to a paper wallet and make a note of the privkey (privkey is so important, without it the coins are lost)http://paperwallet.sterlingcoin.org.uk
Close the Sterlingcoin Wallet
Delete the wallet.dat (backup first) /users/user/appdata/roaming/sterlingcoin/
Then restart the Sterlingcoin Wallet
Go to Help>Debug Window>Console and type importprivkey "yourprivkey" and hit enter
The address from the paper wallet will be imported to your Sterlingcoin wallet along with your Sterlingcoin.
