    Hi

    I have a financial software application that does not have the option of password protecting either the data folder or the EXE.

    Does anyone know of freeware application to protectect either exe or data folder, that is simple, preferably no install and reliable.

    I have tried one or two but Avast pops up warning messages about trojans etc.

    Thanks

    Terry

    This kind of app. has too much false positive. Because the code that they need to use is similar at one point harmful app..
    Only exe, Freeware, portable and reliable (with Avast false positive...): Protect Exe by Dirk Paehl.

    (The message from some scanner is a false report)
