How To Protect Your Settings From Being Changed By The Virus Or Trojans

One feature that many of of the Viruses and Trojans have in similar is that after their installation, they begin to change the system’s configurations and registry keys in order to hide and breed.

This is possible because, in general most of the users operate their windows with administrator privileges , thus helping the virus to spread throughout the system by not having a permit limitation.


The best method to protect your system from the configuration changes made by the Virus or Trojans is to work without administrator permissions but this change of approach is difficult to instill among users. So, assuming that most work will continue with the privileged user, we must find an alternative to protect the user even working in administrator mode.

This protection is offered by free software ” WinLockLess ” , which must run with administrator privileges. It provides complete protection against the registry changes.

The method of employment is very easy. Choose those aspects that you want to protect and press the Activate Changes button, and thus you will have them all protected .
