Block apps and processes
In the main window of the tool users can view their protection status along with the number of monitored or blocked processes, and they can also disable it by clicking on the corresponding button.
The ‘Blacklist’ tab of SpectraByte's Anti-Executable Security lets users block applications based on their process name or on the window title. Aside from the pre-existing list, users can add new entries, but also remove certain records.
The ‘Processes’ section displays the currently running system processes, letting users end the ones that do not belong there. The ‘History’ is meant to help users view the latest relevant security events, including the name, date and time of the blocked application.
SpectraByte's Anti-Executable Security’s ‘Options’ allow users to set the scan interval, in milliseconds, with 500 being the lowest value and 2000 the highest. Moreover, a password can be set, so every time someone tries to access the program, they will be prompted for the correct access key, thus preventing unauthorized access or changes being made to the settings.
Useful process blocker
To summarize, SpectraByte's Anti-Executable Security is a handy utility meant to serve in blocking the running of various processes and apps, ensuring that the time spent on the PC is put to good use.
