When you are sharing your computer with others or you do not want that other persons run all installed applications in your PC.For example you want to disable web browsing AppLockeron a computer used by a young child.It is not possible to uninstall Internet Explorer to get rid of it.


AppLocker  a freeware provides  a complete solution to block any programs from being executed on a target computer.The application will display a list of popular programs including Microsoft Word, Internet Explorer or Nero Burning Rom at startup.


These applications will be displayed even if the programs are not installed on the system. A click on a checkbox will block the software on the computer system.

AppLocker can be used in single PC and multiple PC’s. If you are  intended for multiple machines, it should be installed on one machine, then the target folder is to be copied to a shared location and the executable file should be run from that location. By doing so, AppLocker does not have to be installed on each machine individually.

You can lock the programs by clicking the “Configure” button to open the configuration window. Type the caption you want displayed on the ‘Lock application list’. Then, type the programs executable file name and click the ‘Add’ button to add new applications.


The drawback of the software blocker is that there is no protection of the application itself.
