EXE Password Protector is a system utility that allows you to password-protect any Windows executable file. Whenever you try to open protected executable file you will see the prompt that asks you to enter the valid password so only person who knows the correct password can launch this file. Once the executable is protected, you may copy this file to another computer and it stays protected no matter what operating system this computer runs. Such behavior is achieved by adding a special code to your executable file (approximately 100 kb), implementing a true, system-independent protection mechanism.
Password adding and removing is very simple. EXE Password Protector provides dialog-based wizards that guide you through the steps of selecting the necessary file and setting/removing the password. One of the important features EXE Password Protector provides is a fail-safe protection. For your own safety sake you cannot set password-protection for the system-critical files which may lock your Windows OS from booting. Additionally, you can create backups of your original files to make sure you won't get into troubles in case you forget the password.
