A complete, simple and reliable partition and disk manager for Windows.

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.

Removing password-protection from executable file will restore its original state.

System Requirements:

Pentium II class at least 200 MHz; Windows 98, NT4, Me, 2000, XP, 2003; RAM: 64 MB; Disk Space: 3-5 MB of initial free disk space; Video: 800x600, True Color

Comments on EXE Password Protector

I don't know about all of you other vista users, but for this installation, you have to save the .zip to your computer, and extract the files, and run both the setup & activation as the administrator, unless it won't start. UAC kinda screwed up my desktop, which might be the issue.

The product has a simple, easy to use interface, but I find the app quite useless. But I do not have a significant need for a executable password protector.

Just about any run of the mill archiving software can accomplish the same.

Why would anyone want to use this software in the age of UAC/LUA/ACLs and free sfx encryption programs like 7-zip?

Modifying an exe in order to protect it is a poor way to protect. One drawback, for instance is that some programs will refused to load when it detects a modified exe. (Eg: Nullsoft installers)
