Exceptional performance

Manage access to your PC with this well-designed program.

Much like its professional counterpart, WinLock offers an endless array of options for locking certain files, functions, and even Web access. And as is the case with the professional version, our only complaint is that its Internet options work only with Internet Explorer.

WinLock's interface will appeal to all user levels. It's easy to navigate. All of your protection options are listed under drop-down style menu buttons. The program includes options for hiding files and folders, disabling system features such as Windows' Registry Editor and Task Manager, and limiting access to executable files. You can also manage your Start Menu display, block specific hot-key combos, and even mouse functions. The entire program is password protected. Once we enabled it, we checked off on various restriction options. As soon as we clicked OK, the program immediately activated our restrictions. 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.

An extensive Help menu is included with the program. WinLock offers a fully functional, 30-day trial period. With its well-designed user interface and solid performance, we highly recommend WinLock as an exceptional tool for managing computer access.
