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!

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
