Stop Software Installation Tool is an application designed to help computer administrators block the installation of specific software on any Windows workstation.

Although supposed to perform such an important task, the program is actually pretty easy to use, mostly thanks to its well organized interface and clean layout.

Once you install and launch Stop Software Installation Tool for the first time, you are prompted to define the file masks to be blocked by the program. There are two available options: download a file mask list or load one from file.

While you can add as many files and extensions as you want, you're also allowed to set up a list of excluded files, but it's at least as important to also define the users whose attempts should be blocked. Stop Software Installation Tool automatically scans and detects the Windows users and lets you specify the ones to be restricted.

Another good feature of the program is the ability to run completely hidden, while also offering a separate mode with a System Tray icon for instant access.

What's more, the app supports password protection to make sure nobody manages to access its settings, but also hotkeys to easily activate the application in case it's running in stealth mode.

It doesn't slow down the system and, more importantly, it runs on each version of Windows, without the need for administrator privileges.

All things considered, Stop Software Installation Tool is a tool that serves its purpose and provides quite a user-friendly environment to make everything a lot easier for both beginners and those with a bit more knowledge.
