Access Controller Editor's Review

Access Controller is an application that helps secure your computer desktop whilst your away from it. When you're away from your computer, you can enable Access Controller so that a password is required to unlock your desktop and continue working. Access Controller is customizable, and works as a nice alternative to the standard Windows Lock screen.

One of the main features of Access Controller is that you can customize the lock mode - something which stands out, as very little customization is available for the Windows lock screen. When locking your computer, you can either enter a full screen lock mode, so that your desktop isn't visible at all (covered with either a blank screen or a colorful digital clock style screensaver) without entering a password, or use the ‘Watch’ screen, which leaves the desktop visible, but any clicks or key presses automatically open up a password request dialog box.

To enable Access Controller and start the lock screen, you can define your own Hot Key keyboard shortcut, or double click the icon in the system tray. As well as this, Access Controller can start automatically after the Windows Screen Saver if you enable this option.

Access Controller will log attempts to access your system too, so you can track when and how often unauthorized unlocking attempts were made. To help make your system more secure, enforce Windows policies such as disabling Task manager, registry tools and the standard Windows lock screen, all within Access Controller to help make it work more efficiently and keep out intruders.

As well as all this, if someone is trying to access your computer for legitimate reasons or wants to get hold of you whilst you're away from your workstation, Access Controller will allow them to leave you a message, right from the lock screen. The unlock dialog box makes space for a message to be typed, and the name of the sender.

Overall I quite like Access Controller. Its definitely more flexible, customizable, and useful than the standard Windows lock screen. I really like the message leaving feature. Overall, I’d rate Access Controller 7/10.






Access Controller Publisher's Description

Access Controller is a desktop locking security utility you can use to protect your desktop when you are not near your PC. To activate protection, define a password in Options, and select the Lock command. Password protection can be automatically activated on boot or with a click of an icon in the system tray. You can also log access attempts and enforce a custom background image. Access Controller supports a simple messaging system to allow your visitors to leave short messages on your locked desktop. Access Controller gives you two locking methods: with hiding your desktop and using a screen saver; and without hiding to allow others to see what is happening on your desktop. The second method is good for showrooms where you need to demonstrate something to your customers.
