WinGuard Pro 2016 10.0.3.2

Description by the Software Developer:
"Secure your computer by Password protecting your Windows applications, programs and EXE files. Plus encryption for your files, folders and drives - direct from Windows Explorer. Extra features allow you to disable Task Keys, Software Installation, Internet Explorer, Mozilla FireFox, Downloading Files, Zip and Self Extracting Files and the Boot Keys (F8).

Features.

- Built-in programs: There are around 15 common programs built-in for locking in the Free Edition.
- Lock your own programs: You can also add any of your own programs for locking.
- Password timer: You can set in seconds how long you want to give users to enter the password to access any locked programs. This can help deter hackers.
- Screen blank: You can have the screen blank in emergencies, this prevents any use of the computer, and blacks out the screen only leaving a password box to access the entire system.
- Additional Protection: This lets you lock even more features down on your PC. Such as the Desktop, My Computer, Internet Access, Internet Downloading, Software Installations and much more.
- Stop people installing software: This is a must have for those of you who are sick of users installing software on your computers without your consent. With this feature just a simple click is all that's needed and the software will disable Setup programs, Installers, Self Extracting Exe's, Zip files, the lot.
- Help prevent viruses: Using the above feature to stop software installs, this will help prevent such viruses that may be contained in program the user is trying to install.
- Lock or Encrypt your Files and Folders: Two methods of protection are available, including strong encryption.
- It's free: WinGuard Pro is as it states FREE! Though we do offer a Premium Edition for an optional fee."

Softoogle's Review of WinGuard 2007 Pro Free Edition 6.5.1
September 29, 2006

WinGuard comes in two editions: Free and Premium. Regrettably, in the WinGuard Free edition some (in fact, most) of the features are disabled. For instance, you can password-protect your Mozilla Firefox browser (if you happen to have one), but to password-protect Internet Explorer, you'll have to buy the WinGuard Premium Edition, which means that only 10% of all Web surfers can use this functionality; other 90% browse either with Internet Explorer, or with Opera, or with something else. The Opera browser is not listed in the Free Edition and it is unclear whether or not it is supported in the Premium Edition.

The list of things the WinGuard Free Edition lets you password-protect is, in fact, very limited, but there is a very welcome note that explains that you can add your own programs in the Premium Edition.

Yet another noteworthy feature of WinGuard is encryption. If you try to encrypt a folder with WinGuard, a message pops up telling you that you cannot encrypt entire folders with the WinGuard Free Edition and that you will have to either buy the Premium Edition or "select a single file and try again."

What's the point of incorporating all those checkboxes into the interface if when you click on them all you get is a pop-up telling you the feature is disabled?

We successfully password-protected our Recycle Bin (what's the point of password-protecting it, anyway?) as well as our Mozilla Firefox browser, but when we tried to password-protect the Control Panel, it just didn't work, the Control Panel was still perfectly accessible. So we successfully uninstalled WinGuard through the Add and Remove Programs in the Control Panel. It's unclear what the point of setting all those passwords is if the program can be so easily deleted.

This piece of software received the "Softpedia pick" award, of course.
