Password Protect .exe Application Files

Have some secret exe files that you don’t want it to be run by any one else? Then you can protect it with a password of your choice.
Empathy is a great portable application that can protect any executable file with a password of your choice. That means whenever any one tries to run the exe file, it will ask for the correct password first. If the password is provided, it will run else not.
The above image can tell you what happens when you try to run the file encrypted with Empathy.
•    Easy to use.
•    Small program that do not require installation.
•    Can be used any number of time.
This is the only disadvantage of Empathy, that it is a postcardware. This means that it can be used for unlimited time but to use it with all features, one needs to send     a postcard to the developer, who will send the unlocking code by e-mail. Funny?

Disable File, Folder and Text from Copy and Cut

Windows allows anyone to copy or cut any file or folder easily without any restriction. This is a problem if you have some secret files or folders that you want to keep with yourselves.
This was not possible for a long time but here is a tool that can do exactly that. Moreover the software is free and easy to use.
M File Anti-copy is great software that can lock and disable copy and move feature inWindows. The program requires a password to be used.
What you all need to do is just install this software and enter a password. You will see a home screen of the software from which you can activate the “Disable Copy” feature. After this the paste option in the right click context menu will get disabled.
However if you need to copy or cut the file then you can use the built in File Copier.
•    Free tool.
•    Disables file copy and cut in Windows.
•    Password protected.
•    Disables Task Manager and Registry Editor, so that some user can not end the process.
The only disadvantage I found was that you can however upload the file over internet. What you think?
