Malicious software can easily infect nearly all files on your system, regardless of format if not properly protected. Luckily, solutions like Install-Block, a simple-to-use program enable you to password-protect application installers. It automatically provides a live monitoring service for all tools running on the system.
Quick and easy deployment process
The application cones in a light package. Running it takes you through a quick and uneventful process, with the result of deploying it on your system. Once this is done, Install-Block creates in icon in the system tray area. Proceeding to the configuration menu require you to input a master password.
Various options to work with
This area has well-organized options. You can set Install-Block to automatically run at system startup, configure remote access requests, as well as activate a hotkey for displaying the configuration panel.
It is possible to log events to file, block the Start menu, create a whitelist or blacklist, as well as use extra tools for encrypting files, administrating the network, and generating a one-time password.
Using little of your system's resources
The application is very low-demanding when it comes to CPU and RAM. It has a good response time and works smoothly, without causing the OS to hang, crash or pop up error dialogs. We haven't come across any issues in our tests. Too bad that Install-Block has not been updated for a while and only works on a few older versions of Windows.
A few last words
Taking everything into consideration, we can say that Install-Block is a neat security solution, specially designed for developers who want to deliver products in a safe matter. Unfortunately, it stopped receiving updates and is only supported by outdated operating systems.
