Spiderlock

CNET Editors' review

This freeware application blocks any access to your PC through password-protected locking, but it isn't as secure as we'd expect. To begin, you'll need to have Macromedia Flash Player installed on your machine to run this program. In actuality, Spiderlock doesn't lock your PC as its name suggests; instead, its program's window display blocks your computer screen. A quick Ctrl Alt Delete will easily terminate this program's chief function. Each time it is launched, Spiderlock requires you to enter a password to enable and disable it. If an incorrect password is keyed in, access is denied and the blocked attempt is noted once the correct password is entered. All said, we don't recommend Spiderlock for protecting your computer from curious eyes since it is so easily disabled.

    "Task Manager Can Shut It Down Even When it's In Lock Mode.NOT GOOD!!!"

    September 23, 2006  |   By glandsay

    Version: Spiderlock 1

    Pros

    none.

    Cons

    First, no password database. When you want to lock the screen and open the program, you will always enter a password to the box and submit it, and that's always a routine. You want to lock the screen enter a password and unlock it with also the password you enter. In and out you'll type a password. Second, Windows Task Manager Can shut it off even you are in the LOCK MODE. SO, THIS APPS. DIDN'T DO WHAT IT"S SUPPOSE TO DO. NOT RECOMMENDED!!!

    "5 stars: I can't recommend this product highly enough!!!"

    August 2, 2006  |   By SaintlyMic

    Version: Spiderlock 1

    Pros

    This is a very simple pc desktop locker.

    I have no use for locking tools.

    I just like trying out programs.

    This isn't very secure, but will stop bathroom break snoopers.

    I placed a copy in my startup programs folder, so it looks like I have imputed a password, when all I need to do is click enter, LOL.
