Applocker - Prevent Others From Opening/Executing Certain Apps On Your ComputerApplocker is a freeware that prevents specified programs from being launched. It lets you limit what applications can be used on your computer. Applocker is very useful especially for parents who want to restrict their kids to use computer, or just to keep certain programs out of reach of other people. Applocker is only limited to locking .EXE files, so you cannot lock control panel, and anything of that sort. You can however lock things like Task Manager, Explorer, Firefox, FileZilla and other .EXE files.
Here's how you can lock specific programs on your computer with Applocker:
- Download and install your free copy of Applocke here.
