Download.com Staff Feb 27, 2009

Though its scope is fairly narrow, this application effectively password protects your executable files. WinUtilities EXE Protector launches in a well-designed interface that is relatively easy to use. The program works with a wizardlike functionality that allows you to choose the executable file you want to password protect. You also can back up the file before applying the password protection to avoid loss or damage. The process was fast and effective, though it only allows you to password protect one executable file at a time. You also can remove the security password using this program. Though it's limited to executables, WinUtilities EXE Protector can satisfy any user who wants to secure access to their programs.

Developer's Description

WinUtilities EXE Protector lets you protect EXE files with a security password on your own PC, and even when you copy it to a CD/DVD or another portable device, EXE files stay password-protected from others.
