AppAdmin v1.1.0

AppAdmin Editor's Review

There are many ways to block programs from being run on a Windows-based computer. We can use Windows Registry to block execution of any particular program or we can find several applications with this purpose. However, using Registry is complicated and most of the applications are not free. A solution that I've found lately is via a lightweight free application called AppAdmin.

The benefit using AppAdmin is evident. First of all, it's very easy to use, does not require installation (so you can run it directly from your USB flash drive) and the app uses hash method to block a program so it's useless to change the banned application executable name - it will be still blocked.

As tested, works fine in Windows 7 and Windows XP SP3 but it should work as well in Windows Vista and 64-bit OS.

To use AppAdmin, you'll just have to drag an drop an application (which you want to block) into AppAdmin or select it with the 'Block' button (+Block) and you're done. If you check the application that should be blocked and still works (which didn't happen to me), you should press the 'Restart Explorer' button and then everything will be OK - as described by the producer. The idea of restarting Windows Explorer is to avoid a PC restart, trick which seems to work. Removing the ban is just as simple, you'll just have to select the program that you want to un-ban and delete it from the list (right click on the program in the list) and then press 'Restart Explorer'.

In case you want to run an application that is currently blocked without having to unblock it (delete it from the list), just double-click on the program in the list and it will be launched.

If you have forgotten your password, you'll have to download a tiny program which generates a code and then send that code to the producers email and they will send you the forgotten password - as described by the producers.

Pluses: Does not encrypt any data so there is no risk of data loss; password protection;

Drawbacks / flaws:

In conclusion: Useful application if you desire to block any software installed on your computer from being used.
