destroying your computer.

You can start KeyboardLocker INSTANTLY with Ctrl+Alt+L, and start KeyboardLocker
automatically as your computer boots (by copying the KeyboardLocker short cut into the StartUp folder).

allowing mouse interaction

|I came home from a weekend trip and found that my new
cats had stepped on my keyboard and launched AOL which, I only have 3
hours a month, then I'm charge per minute. It turned out I was logged on
for over 2000 minutes. Hence I had to find a solution...KeyboardLocker!

How to use KeyboardLocker
KeyboardLocker features two startup modes
- A configuration mode, where the unlock phrase can be entered. Note -
in the Evaluation version you cannot change the unlock phrase - it is set
to 'buyme'. Access this via the Configure KeyboardLocker start menu
- An instant start mode, where the unlock phrase cannot be entered. The
only way to regain control of your machine is to type the unlock phrase.
While locked, you can still use your mouse to start a DVD playing. The
instant start mode can be useful to run when a machine starts up - to
provide protection straight away. Access this via the Start
KeyboardLocker NOW! start menu item.
