Hello,
 
A friend asked me if this tool is correct, so I come to you for more information because I do not know what to say.

My opinion would be that such is unnecessary, if not undesireable.  I see no need for anyone to install it...and it seems to have a registry cleaner function, if I'm reading correctly.

 

Bleeping Computer does not recommend/suggest that anyone install/use registry cleaner programs/suites.

The only problem with this method of protection is that it requires user knowledge and interaction. In other words, you have to be involved--and to be honest, it can be a pain. If you want to install a program, you'll have to temporarily disable System Protect or allow access via popup dialogs (if you're in Ask mode), or the install will fail. By default, System Protect only watches system files but you can also put a watch on any folder you choose. Personally, I think it stops a bit short in this regard--I'd like the ability to completely write-protect folders as well.

From experience I know that if things become too complicated they tend to not be utilized. Then it becomes a 'why bother', situation. Defeating the intent in the first place.

The Internet is so big, so powerful and pointless that for some people it is a complete substitute for life.

A learning experience is one of those things that say, "You know that thing you just did? Don't do that." Douglas Adams (1952-2001)

Hello,
 
thank you for this additional information, it reinforces the fact that it is unnecessary, such protection may create problems.
