Though it's far from a full-featured privacy tool, this program successfully takes care of its one job. As you might guess from its name, Anti Boss Key lets you hide any number of open windows with a quick hot-key combo.
In addition, it can change the screen resolution and mute the sound. The user-friendly interface shows you a list of all running programs and lets you drag ones you want to keep open to a whitelist. To hide all other windows and programs, you simply push the selected hot key or configure a new one. For increased stealth, you can hide the application's control panel. However, Anti Boss Key doesn't provide extra protection features such as cleaning tools for wiping away your surfing history and traces of application usage.
On the contrary, many full-featured privacy suites also can do exactly what this utility does. Still, inveterate slackers with particularly nosy coworkers or supervisors will find the application delivers on its promise.

Version: Anti Boss Key 4.2
The product is the best I could find on the net. Works fast, very lightweight and does everything need in order to protect your privacy. The support is marvellouse and it is one of the few applications that work on vist and the only one that hides tray icons. I definetely recommend it.
