Restrict access to disk drives or particular programs, with Simple Run Blocker
Simple Run Blocker is a free and portable program that lets you restrict access to programs and / or drives. In case that you live with others you may find this program useful, especially if your PC stays open and unlocked.
The interface is simple and easy. You can edit a list of programs that you want to protect just by dropping in their executables. Activating and deactivating any entries in this list needs just a click.
A nice feature is that you cannot only define programs with restricted access, but also the opposite, that is allowed programs, preventing access to anything else! Of course, this doesn’t make the computer unusable, main system apps remain accessible. Consider this as just an easy way to isolate instantly a lot of programs.
Restricting access to a drive prevents anyone from reading files located on that drive.
