How to prevent other users using basic functions in your computer

We would feel guilty or uneasy others using our computers when we are near it or away from it, we  feel uncomfortable for that any valuable data’s in our computer may be operated by others not even more but just using basic functions (cut, copy, paste or delete)  making the situation shattered. At times we may even hesitate to restrict them doing all those things.

But now you can prevent all this things by just using utility ‘Prevent” a freeware app which will not allow other users to operate with this functions on any a Windows computer.

The downloaded zip file consists of:
1. Prevent.exe
2. Pre_1
3. Pre_2
4. Read Me file.
5. Uninstall

Run the Prevent installer setup. The installer only places the Prevent folder in the system Program Files folder. A desktop shortcut will also be created. To run the program, click on Prevent. Set your Hot key to stop Prevent. You may set it as Ctrl+P if you wish. Hotkeys Win+F8 kills Pre_1 and Win+F9 kills Pre_2, too. But the single hotkey set by you will kill all Prevent processes at the same time.

Prevent :
1. Stops Cut
2. Stops Paste
3. Stops Copy
4. Stops Delete
5. Stops Copy To
6. Stops Move to
7. Stops Send To
8. Prevents renaming
9. Disables Task Manager’s End Process button. Also it doesn’t allow you to right click on process name and click on end process. It also grays out the context menu items, disable Ctrl+C, Ctrl+X and Ctrl+V and/or stops the process.
