     Just a simple program that allows you to put a password to start you files. For example if you want to be the one that can start KaZaa or any other exe file, just run my prg and you will have your KaZaa.exe renamed and a new file called KaZaa.exe......once you run it you will be asked for your password, if it's right, real KaZaa will be lunched...if it is not, program will end. It is a very simple program, with password and file name put into it, so you don't need to store pwd or anything else in the register or in any other place. There are 2 prgs, 1)PwdExe Is the prg that asks for pwd and launches other exes, compile it in RELEASE version and put in the same dir of FileProtector.exe IMPORTANT: Remember, RELEASE...i calculated pwd and filename place for this version. 2)FileProtector The prg that does all the work. Then, whenever you want, you can restore the file you protected(always supplying your password for that file).

Note: Due to the size or complexity of this submission, the author has submitted it as a .zip file to shorten your download time. Afterdownloading it, you will need a program like Winzip to decompress it.Virus note:All files are scanned once-a-day by Planet Source Code for viruses, but new viruses come out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them. For your own safety, please:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net
