Do you ever feel paranoid of someone casually 'fixing' your computer with a handy flashdrive, thinking they are actually tossing on a keylogger? There is a useful tool called USB Write Protector for just that. It's a small windows utility that turns on or off USB write protection. USB Write Protector will secure you computer against would-be physical USB attacks like that of the USB Switchblade / USB Rubber Ducky by making USB thumb drives non-writable. <p> And second, have you ever run into the problem on Windows where you can't delete a file because it's being used by another program or person? Now we have Unlocker, a portable app that unlocks files so you can delete them. <p>
USB Write Protector can be downloaded from here. By using USB Write Protector, you can protect your Windows computer from harmful rays from the USB Switchblade of death! Easily run the program from a .rar file, and just run the exe. You can also use this as a portable app. Double click, and choose USB Write Protection on or off. If you cant read Dutch, change this to English or whatever your language is. When ON, no files or data can be written onto a USB thumb drive.
Unlocker can be downloaded from here. Problems occur while attempting to delete a file such as:
*Cannot delete file: Access is denied.
*The file is in use by another program or user.
*Make sure the disk is not full or write-protected and that the file is not currently in use, etc.
Trying to find the problem is a pain! So we have Unlocker. It's a free downloadable tool for Windows and it comes for installation or as a portable version. Just install and you're set. Now, try to delete a file and if you get a popup, right click on the file and choose Unlocker. Lockers will appear in a list. Choose unlock all and the file becomes available for use. If file is not locked, you still have the option to delete, rename, or move the file straight from unlocker.
