Protect EXE offers a simple yet effective way of blocking access to any given application: it sets a password to the EXE file and asks for it every time you want to run the file.

It's certainly a good measure to prevent children from using a certain kind of programs or protecting sensible tools, but there's no way to filter restrictions so these will also be applied to you.

Also, be careful when choosing the password to protect the file: you'll need it to unlock the file sometime in the future and there's no way to recover it.

Protect Exe will protect your all your EXE files with a password. Without this password you cannot run the file. The EXE is encrypted with a Twofish 256 bit keysize.
