Chris PC-Lock Editor's Review

To most people, ensuring the security of the computer or laptop whilst they are way from it is very important. Not only this, ensuring that opened applications or unsaved work is left alone whilst their computer is unattended, is just as important. If you’re looking for a way to help insure you’re the only user of your computer, and no one else gains access to it whilst your back is turned, Chris PC-Lock is maybe the ideal solution for you.

Chris PC-Lock lets you password protect your desktop, and enable protection on demand and when you need it. Once enabled, a password is then required to unlock your desktop and to regain access to your system, ready for you to pick up from where you left off.

A nice feature about Chris PC-Lock is that it can actually replace your screensaver. Once activated, it flicks through a fullscreen slide show of different nature and landscape images, until a key is pressed or the mouse is moved. At this point, a dialog box is then shown, requesting password entry. Chris PC-Lock is accessible - its own built in on-screen keyboard is accessible by clicking the keyboard icon in the bottom right hand of the password entry window, to assist with entering the password.

Chris PC-Lock is very customizable for what it is. Its settings are accessible by right clicking on. There are a few general settings such as whether to automatically run at Windows Startup, hot key assigning, disabling Windows Screensaver and so on. By default, Chris PC-Lock uses its default picture slideshow as the lock screen, however this can be replaced with any custom color, custom single image or custom image slideshow of your liking, and setup all within settings. The slideshow is particularly customizable, as picture size, slide order and delay settings can also be specified.

For what it is, Chris PC-Lock is very good in my opinion. However recent versions of Windows all have Windows lock screens which provide the same basic functionality, however just not as customizable all from the same space. For example, the lock screen background can be edited using the Registry Editor, and a slideshow background can be enabled, ultimately replicating Chris PC-Lock software but for free. However its not as convenient and would take a little while longer to setup. Is it worth the $14.99 price tag?

I quite like Chris PC-Lock, as its very easy and simple to use. As much as I think this, I don’t think i’d be prepared to spend $14.99 on software providing me with features I already have setup and working. If Chris PC-Lock provided extra security features above what Windows already provides, then maybe it’d appeal to me more. Overall, i’d rate it 3.8/5.
