SysHardener is a Windows system hardener that lets you strengthen the settings of Windows to reduce and ultimately remove any chances of cyber-attack risks.

How does it work?

The primary hardening process that this Windows hardener tool uses encompasses deactivation of unnecessary Windows functionalities and subsequently securing the applications that are more prone to attacks.

Other ways the system hardener helps to secure your OS include disabling:

  • Macros, OLE and ActiveX to moderate Microsoft Office exploits
  • Windows Script Host (wscript.exe) to prevent JS, VBE, VBS, and WSH scripts from functioning

SysHardener also protects your system from ransomware which usually embeds itself in email attachments via DOC, XLS, VBS, JS, JSE, and WSF.

Moreover, this tool reinforces your Windows Firewall rules to hinder any outbound connectivity of programs that are frequently attacked. This is accomplished by not letting these programs send data from your PC as well as preventing them from downloading remote files.

What else can it do?

Apart from hardening Windows and unassociating files, SysHardener restricts the functionality of vulnerable applications such as Word, Excel, Adobe Reader, Foxit Reader, etc. This way, the constrained applications don't become the loopholes for allowing an attack to your Windows OS.

Other Important features:

  • You can run the program through the command-line with /restoreselected or /applyselected
  • There is nothing extra is installed such as adware, spyware or any other pests.
  • By just clicking on the Apply Selected button, you will be able to check any crucial tweaks by default.
  • You can quickly restore the values of the selected tweaks to default in case something doesn't work.

SysHardener is free software and is compatible with Windows Vista, 7, 8, 10 (3264-bit).
