Winlock is a complete program designed to prevent prying eyes from modifying, viewing or configuring elements of your computer that you would prefer them to leave alone.

Winlock itself is simple to use - the interface is clear and uncomplicated, with a menu running down the left-hand side and the main interface on the right. Once you chose the user account you want to protect and a master password, you can move through the various parts of the program, restricting access, hiding elements and remotely administering use of your computer.

Almost every aspect of Winlock is configurable, from the way you are notified of changes to what appears in the start menu and which drives you want to hide. So what would you need Winlock for? Above all, it's suitable for computers that will be being used by strangers, such as in a school, guest house or internet café. The program is also suitable for home use, but if you need it in the privacy of your own house, you should ask yourself a question - why am you letting people you trust so little use your computer?!

Even if the Winlock user is not an expert, there should be no problem. The help file is comprehensive, and each block/restrict action is clearly displayed and easily toggled. For instance, if you are managing computers in a library, you may want to block file sharing sites on the internet, prevent the computer from being locked, and hide the control panel. All of these actions, and many more, are easily and quickly achieved with Winlock. It's an all-round winner.

Winlock - the perfect solution for managing computers used by multiple people.

Comprehensive security solution for personal or publicly accessible computers.

WinLock is a comprehensive security software for personal or publicly accessible computers running all versions of Windows from 2000 to Windows 8. It is a program that ensures that only authorized people can access sensitive information on your computer.

This security tool allows you to restrict your users from accessing important system resources like Control Panel, desktop, and system registry, disable Windows hotkeys (such as Alt-Ctrl-Del, Alt-Tab, Ctrl-Esc, etc.), block mouse, hide the Start button and taskbar.

With WinLock you can control how long others can use your computer. It runs from the system tray and requires a password to gain access to the available settings.

It loads automatically with Windows and allows you to add an optional startup message, provide audio notification, and set the time limit. Once that limit is reached, Windows is summarily shut down. You can toggle the timer on and off from the tray.

Parental control system lets you activate filters that allow access to websites that are useful for learning and reference only. That's why responsible parents install WinLock on every computer that their children use.

It also lets you deny access to selected files, applications, and Explorer windows (Recycle Bin, My Computer, etc.), usb and hard drives, filter Internet content and prohibit access to questionable websites. When enabled, there is no way around it without the proper password.

Whether you're worried about coworkers going on the network and gaining unauthorized access to your private files, or your kids messing up your work files, WinLock is a software-only solution to your security needs.

Key features:

System restrictions - disable command prompt, desktop, control panel, safe mode, and more...

Time-limited access - control how long your children can use the computer.

Restrict Start Menu - hide the selective Start menu items, block context menus.

Control Internet access - allow access only to the trusted sites only, and block all others.
