So one of my friend ask me if I know how to lock a document e.g word file or spreadsheet etc, so it can only be opened from that PC only (work purposes, not going to let any work to be 'take home' one). I've a lot of thought about that in the past but never really looking at it.

If any of you know the proprietary or free tools to do that, please let me know:)

Thanks!

For microsoft office applications, you can always password protect the document. Some other applications also allow this. Granted you can still copy the file to another computer, but they will need the password to view it.

The Office password functions sre trivially cracked. It only keeps honest people honest.
