Localization Method Tutorial


As you can see, the IT installed Foxit Reader, but forgot to add an exception that would allow this program to run. So, we will take matters into our own hands. First, find the directory of the program you're trying to open. I will use Foxit Reader as my example, which is located in C:/Program Files/.

Next, find the folder within C:/Program Files that your program is contained. **Make sure it's the folder that's within C:/Program Files and not a subfolder such as C:/Program Files/Software.

After that, right-click that folder and scroll down to copy. Alternatively, you could just highlight the folder and hit CTRL+C.

Your next objective is to find a directory, that you have rights to read & write; such as My Documents, and right-click the center of the screen and scroll down to paste, not paste shortcut. Alternatively once again, you can also just hit CTRL+V.

Now, open the folder that you've pasted into the directory of your choice and find the program you want to run. Click the name of the application you want to run once so that you may rename it. Rename it to a program that's allowed to run. 

Voila! You've successfully used the Localization method to run a blacklisted program! Although this doesn't work with some programs, such as Command Prompt, it will work with most.

Running Programs Without Rename Method


AntCommander is a small utility- (just under 2MB) that can be used to run (SOME) core Windows program that you cannot use the rename or the localization (Guide in progress) methods to run. Using the AntCommander's simplistic user-friendly interface, one can do powerful things; although the arguably greatest tool in the hacker's arsenal won't open with this method. (MSDOS A.K.A. Command Prompt) AntCommander is a Java-based application (formatted to .JAR) so unless your machine doesn't have Java, you should be able to run this program. To download AntCommander click HERE. (Please note that this download is in .GZ format; meaning that you'll have to have WinRAR or an equivalent compression utility.) I will create a guide very soon.
