I am using Windows 7. Is there any software which can password protect specific application? Must be a freeware application

What is wrong with the many applications that turn up when you google password protect windows application? If you have any specific requirements please add them to your question by clicking edit. – Nifle Dec 31 '11 at 13:57

You could password protect/encrypt the main exe file of the application, with something like Protect Exe

This may cause problems with UAC, not actually tested it

What I can tell, Protect Exe looks like it writes to the Program Files (even though it doesn't have to). This will create issues with UAC. – surfasb Dec 31 '11 at 18:57
