Hi.

We would like to lock an exe for a backup application to prevent users from messing with backup jobs and policies.
If the server console is logged in,  anyone can launch the backup agent and make changes which could be disasterous.
I have seen some free EXE lockers but I need something clean and don't mind paying.
Thanks !
