Lock My Computer Editor's Review

Lock My Computer is an interesting utility, which I feel could actually revolutionise the job of an IT security manager in a public place, such as a library or internet café. It lets an administrator take a lot of control over a standalone Windows system, and lock it down with ease to secure levels before allowing public access to it.

In terms of the level of restriction available, Lock My Computer is actually very flexible. It incorporates a very simple and easy to use interface, consisting of different system categories, to which different restrictions can be applied. Looking through the categories, almost everything is covered that comes as standard with Windows. From each category, simply ticking boxes next to certain restrictions is all that needs to be done to apply the limitation – it’s very easy!

Something I really like about Lock My Computer is that restrictions do not have to apply to all users. In a home environment, this could be very useful. For example, restrictions and limitations could be applied to children or teenager account owners, whilst allowing the administrator or parent to log on and have full and unrestricted access to the system. This means Lock My Computer could also be used to help less computer literate users access the system without causing any accidental damage.

However, in some cases, restrictions put in place by Lock My Computer don’t actually work, most likely due to issues with some versions of Windows, missing services packs and Windows Updates, and other third party software. Upgrading or updating your system could help overcome this issue, however isn’t guaranteed to fix restrictions that do not work. This is one of Lock My Computer’s biggest downfalls in my opinion, as there are other desktop security systems available that either show custom restrictions depending on the system, or purely and simply just work! This was a slight let down for me, and I’d imagine would be an even bigger let down for users who have paid and registered for the product!

Overall, I am reasonably impressed with Lock My Computer. It’s a very easy piece of software to use, with a simple layout and design, and fulfils its purpose well. However what I would like to see in future releases is fixes for some restrictions that do not work on some systems. I’d also like to see some default restriction modes that apply to different scenarios (e.g. for a child at home, or for public use in a café) which could then be adapted further if necessary. This would further save time and effort for administrators. I would recommend Lock My Computer to others over more expensive desktop security software, and give it a 7/10 rating.
