Developer's Description

ExeLock is an easy-to-use program that allows you to password protect programs and applications. Usually, those files are stored on your system with the default .EXE file type. The protected EXE file will still work fine on other PCs. Any executable program can be locked with a password, such as chat software, multimedia players, games, etc. Support hardware binding mode, generate an exclusive password for each computer. If you share your computer with others, you might have a few programs that you keep on your hard drive, but you do not want other people to be able to run them. Now ExeLock should be the best choice for you.

  • Lock Any Programs: ExeLock can lock any .exe program with a password. If you do not want somebody else to run your tax preparation software, personal finance, or other programs, lock them with ExeLock.
  • Lock Software with Password: ExeLock is ideal in these situations, as it allows you to lock and password protect executables so that only those who know the password will be able to run the programs.
  • Safe and Efficient: Exe Lock is safe and efficient. Unlike other protection software, it does not run in the background to provide its functionality. With the other software, which claims to be password protected, an intruder can simply kill the protection program or remove it from the startup group to disable the entire mechanism. Note, that ExeLock protects programs, not icons so that it remains locked even if you run it from the plain command line.
  • The protected Exe file will still work fine on other PCs: When protecting a program, ExeLock modifies the binary executable itself, so that it first asks for a password and runs the program only if a valid password has been entered. It does not change the Registry database, nor does it save the password in hidden files or disk sectors. Also, it does not matter whether you protect the program on your hard drive or a floppy disk.
