lock your desktop with a translucent screen ScreenBlur enables you to keep your desktop private with a password protected screen overlay or a Desktop Blockout option, which will temporarily mask your wallpaper, shortcuts and gadgets to hide them from prying eyes. You can choose to lock your screen automatically after X minutes of inactivity or whenever you press a user defined keyboard shortcut. The translucent lock screen allows you to keep an eye on open windows or applications, which preventing others from messing with your computer. If you want additional privacy, ScreenBlur can automatically minimize all open windows and hide desktop icons and gadgets while your screen is locked. Other features include an option to mute sound while the screen is locked, multiple lock screen designs, adjustable lock screen opacity (for more or less privacy), automatic lock on restart, and more. Please note that ScreenBlur is not designed to provide hacker-proof desktop security. It adds privacy and can cat-proof or kid-proof your desktop, but advanced users will probably find a way to bypass the lock screen. Copyright

It's good 3 stars by gimpguy Mar 04, 2013 (Read all my 1159 reviews)
It's not a bad app by any means and I have others very similar to it. The one downfall with them all is that they are all easily bypassed, this is no exception. BUT these aren't really meant to lock down a system, these types of screen locks are meant to keep, say curious children or granny, or someone who won't bother or know how to get past the screen. In this regard yes, it can be a great security tool to keep someone from messing with files or folders or web sites if you have to take a leave from your pc. FYI, just type the password, you get back in. You can also simply shut the pc down from the screen. There are other options as well. It's nice but nothing I find all that useful. show Review details
Good range of features 4 stars by ianmacm Feb 18, 2013 (Read all my 174 reviews)
It is possible to set a password protected screensaver on Windows, but ScreenBlur has a much wider range of options including hotkeys. The program is no-install, so it can be run from a pen drive. One word of warning though, don't lose the password used to lock the screen, or you may have difficulty getting back into the computer. show Review details
