Install-Block Publisher's description
from Bash Software
Install-Block prevents the installation of software and the use of unwanted apps
Install-Block allows you to require a password to be entered in order for new software to be installed on your computer. An ideal solution for parents, employers, and teachers who seek to secure their PCs, Install-Block can protect you from software potentially harboring adware or spyware. The program can also return to you the productivity lost through the use of games (be it Solitaire or games on the web), instant messaging programs, MySpace, and other distractions. In addition, you can prevent harm to your computer by denying access to system tools and other Windows features. Virtually any program, individual window inside an application, or website can be restricted from use. When someone tries to access a feature that the program administrator has chosen to block, a password prompt is displayed, and without the password, the user cannot continue. Features: Prevent users from installing, or un-installing, any program Prevent users from accessing the Start Menu, Task Manager, Control Panel applets, Internet Options, and other Windows features. Install-Block can also disable logging off or shutting down of the system. Prevent children from using instant messaging programs, file-sharing programs, MySpace, or other content you find unsuitable Prevent employees from playing games such as Solitaire Disable the entire web browser, or choose to only block internet downloads Password-protect nearly any program or window that you choose Administrators can remotely grant or deny access to a blocked program on a networked user's machine Encrypt files using Blowfish technology Ability to specify a list of programs/windows to allow, with access to all others being denied Much more powerful and easier to manage than Windows' Group Policy Prevent Installing
