Download Password-It Shortcut Shield
Supported on Windows XP and Vista systems, Password-It Shortcut Shield is a security application that is intended to help users restrict access to files as well as applications by password protecting them. Available on a free to try basis for a limited usage of 10 trials, this tool offers two simple functions to add password protection and to disable it. You also have the option to retain the original folder or executable file option or to replace it with the tool’s icon. Removing the password-protection requires using the tool’s built-in browser. Even after the tool is uninstalled, the password protected implemented using this tool continues to be effective. Therefore, it is important to remove the security feature before uninstalling it.
