Prevent v 1.0 disables cut, paste, copy, delete, re-naming of files & folders

Prevent v 1.0 is a freeware app which runs on all Windows. If you don't want anyone deleting or renaming or messing around with your data, maybe your younger sibling, then Prevent may be able to help you.

The installer only places the Prevent folder in the system Program Files folder. A desktop shortcut will also be created. To run the program, click on Prevent. Set your Hot key to stop Prevent.

Prevent :
1. Stops Cut
2. Stops Paste
3. Stops Copy
4. Stops Delete
5. Stops Copy To
6. Stops Move to
7. Stops Send To
8. Prevents renaming
9. Disables Task Manager's End Process button. Also it doesn't allow you to right click on process name and click on end process. It also grays out the context menu items, disableCtrl+X, Ctrl+C and Ctrl+V and/or stops the process.

wow, all you brainiacs outwitted yourselves, the app is great for moderate users to stop their kids from accidentally messing up their files while gaming, or whatever else the lil tykes do on the net.

Well, this is somewhat useless, since the hacker can just boot into a linux live cd and get the file there. Better to encrypt the file.

just my 2 cents.

I think you're missing the the point of the program.. haha. Not a tool to prevent hackers from messing up files, it's a tool to prevent idiots from screwing things up! :P

I think I'd rather keep setting permissions through proper ACLs than rely on a program that modifies Task Manager's behavior. That reeks of a hack, and a bad one at that. There are much better ways to prevent an app from being killed.

What do you mean by proper ACLs? Is there any way to prevent a process to be stopped even from 3rd party task managers?

How can a non-admin user stop any other user's processes or delete any other user's files?

This is actually kinda scary since this program is a bit rootkit like.

Do you actually know what a rootkit is? I'm guessing not after reading this post.
