The only way I can think of would be to keep it on a password-protected partition on your hard drive (or mapped drive, if on a LAN).  Thus, before access is granted to the executable, the standard drive access prompt comes up.  Only users with the password to read the drive would gain access.

Hope this helps...

Not really, it's a work machine and I can't divide it up....I'll leave it open for a bit and if nothing comes up the points are yours.

That's a long enought wait...
Thanks
Figure I'll copy the exe to a disk and then delete it from the hard drive and each time before I use  it I will run a little app that restores the file and when finished I will close the app and on closing it will delete the exe from the hard drive again...

Should work...
