    "Perfect for stopping kids printing"

    July 31, 2009   |   By jodamo5

    Version: PrintLock 2.1

    Pros

    Great little programme that does just what is expected. A password box pops up every time someone tries to print.
    The price on the website when clicking the "buy" button in the programme is only US$6.95.

    Cons

    Can be shutdown via task manager, so doesn't provide super strong protection (But I'm only trying to stop kids printing). Buying and registering the product is a bit awkward. I found I had to log off and on to get the registration form to show.

    Summary

    Perfect for stopping kids printing excessively without parents' permission.

    Registering was really awkward:
    I tested it, decided I liked it and wanted to buy. But the only way to get the 'buy' screen up to appear again was to log off and on. Then the window appeared, I clicked "buy", but the window stayed on top of all other windows. So I had to shut the window to buy the product. I then clicked "PrintLock" in the start menu, but because it wasn't running it tried to install the programme again! So log off and on yet again to display the registration screen. Final hiccup - I paid via PayPal on their website, but then didn't receive my unlock code. I have contacted them and am hoping for a response!

    Updated on Aug 5, 2009

    5 days on and I still haven't received my unlock code. I have emailed the company twice, but no response. Have now opened up an official dispute via eBay and will be claiming my full money back.

    "Fails to deliver"

    February 03, 2009   |   By ggalamba

    Version: PrintLock 2.1

    Pros

    Works fine for a month, then reverts to trial basis even after you've paid. No support at all.

    Cons

    No support, insecure. Doesn't work

    Summary

    I bought the product for my classroom. It worked for a while, then reverted to trial mode. No help from vendor. Forget it.

    "Great product. But how do I uninstall it now?"

    January 16, 2009   |   By funkybear15

    Version: PrintLock 2.1

    Pros

    Very easy to use!!! Simple, does exactly what it say says it does.

    Cons

    I can not seem to uninstall it? Help would be appreciated

    Summary

    I love the product, but want to uninstall now so I can purchase it on a different computer.

    Updated on Jan 16, 2009

    I just found the program on add/remove programs. I didn't see it before. It is now removed....so fantastic program all in all!!

    "Take back control over who can print and who can't."

    October 28, 2008   |   By sam51502

    Version: PrintLock 2.1

    Pros

    Small, efficient program. Runs in the backround using few system resorces. Stops unauthorized printing cold! Its half the price of a single ink cartridge.

    Cons

    The only downside is the process can be ended via the "Task Manager" thus removing the protection.
