What's the strongest encryption algorithm available today?

I need to know the most SECURE encryption algorithm and key size. Speed doesn't matter.

Could you give me an example + a (free) program that can accomplish encryption/decryption with that algorithm?

I have heard about Rijndael, but as far as I have read, it is technically not the most secure one available - just a balance between security and speed.

Any ideas + programs? Thanks very much !

Update:

I don't need disk encryption software, I would like to know about file/folder encryption software. Thanks :)

    For file encryption I use the Sophos Encryption tool linked below.

    AES 256 is adequate and you lose every chance of decoding any other way after 3 passes. Four passes is overkill, and impossible.
