Computer Security Program for Windows
Program Selector Pro
Program Selector Pro is a computer security program that provides access control and usage management. When installed, it replaces the standard Windows 95/98/2000/NT/XP/ME user interface (task bar, Start button, and icons) with a convenient user configurable list box of program names. The person who installs Program Selector Pro decides which programs to include in the list box, giving this person complete control over which programs can be run on that computer. In addition, each program on the list can be password protected, and a password can also be assigned to access Windows itself. A supervisor level password is required to add programs to (or remove programs from) the program list box. An administrative level password is required to restore the original Windows interface. This provides the person who installs Program Selector Pro with the ability to completely control the use of a computer. This program is most useful in a business setting, where the supervisor needs the ability to control who can do what on each company computer. It can also be useful in a family setting, however, to give parents control of the computer to block children from using certain programs.
Virus protection and a program uninstall feature are also provided by Program Selector Pro.
This program is distributed as shareware. This means that you can download the program and try it for free for 30 days. At the end of that time, if you wish to continue using the program, you must pay the registration fee of $35.00 (volume discounts available).

An alternative to Program Selector Pro is Program Sentry. This program allows
you to select which programs can be run on a computer and to password protect
programs. It is less intrusive than Program Selector Pro because it does
not replace the usual Windows desktop. However, it does not provide quite
as thorough a control of Windows operations. Click here
for more information on Program Sentry.
