lock your desktop with a transparent layer ClearLock provides a convenient way to lock your desktop with a transparent layer, allowing you to see what's happening on your desktop and at the same time prevent access to the computer without the proper password. ClearLock comes as standalone executable, just run it, set your password and click the ClearLock icon whenever you want to lock your screen. To reset your password, simply delete the .ini file that was created in the same folder. NOTE: ClearLock is designed to prevent others (e.g. your kids) from casually messing with your desktop, while keeping your desktop visible at the same time (unlike the Windows CTRL+L function). The program is NOT intended to be used as a security system - computer savvy users can easily bypass the lock. Copyright Snapfiles.com

No dual monitor support! 2 stars by tkeytkey962 Feb 01, 2013
I have dual monitors and clear lock only locks the one with the start menu. (If you have both monitors synced as one then this might not be an issue.) ClearLock is neat though for when you are at a public place and need to go to the restroom or at school. The noise is kind of cheesy, no MAC OS support (Not that I am a fan of Apple)!! Can't be overridden with task manager, works fine running Windows 7 Professional x64. showShow review details
It's ok 3 stars by gimpguy Jul 22, 2012 (Read all my 1158 reviews)
As stated by the editors, it's not intended to be a major security lock and I think users forgot this or didn't read it. For a smaller child running around or even some older, it may be just handy enough to keep them from getting on your pc if left for a short period of time, enough to say, "get off of that pc" while keeping it secure enough to where they won't just shut things off. You have to look at a program for what it's designed to do. This is a fast, somewhat quick security fix for those exact instances. We have kittens that currently take over the keyboard by playing on it, this actually stops them, "when away from pc" from mucking up whatever is going so I think it's worth a try to some. On the other hand, it could use some improvements and maybe a tad more security and options. showShow review details
