An exceptional tool for controlling your computer's accessibility

Get seemingly endless options with this privacy tool, but it works only with Internet Explorer.

The options seem endless with this privacy tool, which lets users lock files, functions, and even Web access. Our only complaint is that its Internet options only work with Internet Explorer.

WinLock Professional's user interface is very easy to navigate. All of your protection options are listed under drop-down style command buttons. There are way too many options to list, but the program includes settings for hiding files and folders, and disabling system features such as Windows' Registry Editor and Task Manager. You can also manage your Start Menu display, block specific hot key combinations and even mouse functions. The entire program is password protected. In our tests, restrictions were immediately and effectively applied. Unfortunately, if you're a Firefox user, the Internet restrictions won't work for you; they only work for IE. But there are still plenty of other privacy options to keep you satisfied.

Users of all skill levels will be pleased by WinLock's fully functional, 30-day trial period. This is an exceptional tool for controlling your computer's accessibility. It cleanly uninstalled from our PC.
