WinGuard V.2.4 can protect a personal computer running Windows 3.1 from having any of its Program Manager groups or items rearranged or damaged (accidentally or intentionally). These protections would probably be most useful to someone in charge of a number of computers at a school or business, though a parent might wish to prevent little fingers on a mouse from dragging all of the Program Manager icons into a (not so) nice "happy face"!
WinGuard provides for the automatic setting of any one of seven different protection levels (actually, eight, including a "zero protection" setting), as well as allowing the hiding of "sensitive" programs, such as Windows Setup, Control Panel, or File Manager, behind its password-protected shield. WinGuard also allows the hiding of selected Program Manager groups and Control Panel icons, restricting access to them to the authorized user only.
Thus, it can be seen that WinGuard enables the authorized user to configure the Program Manager interface to allow the guest user easy access to selected applications, while minimizing the chances of damage (accidental or intentional) to Windows and the programs accessible through it.
