    hi to all

    i did browse for a freeware , a tough lock for my gf laptop

    in short a program that starts with windows and ask a password, with the option to lock the pc again after some minutes of idle

    for tought i mean not easy to disable


    is there one free ?

    i tried too to install truecrypt with a file container , but i got problem with key path , can let it work , but this is another problem

    thanks
    cheers

    Hi

    The normal PW logon should do that, plus you could also set a Bios PW as well :thumb:

    ScreenSaver with a PW would do that ;)

    Not exactly what you are looking for, but i use it to Lock/Unlock my comp many times a day, is this :)

    It's ONLY 25 KB & Free !

    I see no reason why you shouldn't trust the regular login password over a other program. You can easily bypass it with a livecd, but that can be blocked with a bios password in combination with disabling booting with a cd. Even this can be bypassed, but if you are this paranoid, I would recommend a full disk encryption instead.

    If you don't trust Microsoft perhaps you should install Linux for her.
