    Can ESET be configured to limit access to a file/resource to one application?

    I want a specific file to only be accessed by one application. To be concrete, I want to limit my browser's password file to be accessed by my browser only.

    Hello,

    That type of operation is generally handled via file system permissions, not antimalware software, so I would have to say the answer is no.

    If I can think of a way to do this using the software, I will let you know, though.

    Regards,

    Might be a feature request, but still.

    Windows does not really have options for this other than Windows bootup only and Microsoft-service-deamons only.

    I just imagined that ESET might keep an eye on the file, and prevent any applications other than mybrowser.exe from accessing it.
