I made a tutorial last night on a method to encrypt your wallet and keep it handy, so it's still easy to use, but protected against trojan attacks.  It gets a little sloppy toward the end, but you'll get the idea

this only works if the drive is not mounted when the trojan is active. so it's pretty much useless.

I mounted my drive without an active trojan. Now I have to pay child support.
