ProGuard V.2.2 is a Windows 3.1x utility designed to make it impossible for guest users to run selected programs simply by double-clicking on their icons in Program Manager. Once a particular program's icon has been protected by ProGuard, the guest user will find that trying to run the program will cause ProGuard to run instead, and that a password will be needed before the actual program will start. Logical icons to protect might include those for Windows Setup, Control Panel, PIF Editor, System Editor, File Manager, and the MS-DOS Prompt, and it is a simple matter to add ProGuard's protection to any other application's icon, as well.
ProGuard can also make it difficult for the guest user to start any program that is not present as an icon in Program Manager, and can prevent the guest user from creating, copying, moving, or deleting icons, or changing their properties. In addition, ProGuard can even prevent the guest user from exiting Windows from Program Manager's File and Control menus.
