Folder Guard adds security to Windows 95

Windows 95 doesn't offer much in the way of security. It can help you to protect server-based data, but when it comes to local files and folders, your options are fairly limited. Many popular desktop applications (including Word and Excel) allow you to assign a password to individual files -- but how do you protect entire folders?
Folder Guard from WinAbility.Com will help you shore up some of Win 95's gaping security holes. You can use Folder Guard to validate user logons, add folder-level password protection, and even make folders invisible to your applications (including Explorer and MS-DOS). Access rights may be configured separately for everyone who uses your computer -- so you can keep your children out of your spreadsheet files!Folder Guard costs $US49.95 and you can download an evaluation copy from WinAbility.Com. But a word of warning: if you like it make sure you pay for it -- the evaluation version is fully functional, but occasionally pops up a dialogue box offering to disable security!

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
