Disables keyboard until exit phrase entered, mouse remains active
Disables the keyboard, leaving the mouse active. An exit phrase must be entered before the keyboard is reactivated. Can be used to secure dedicated servers or kiosks, or to show a DVD to a small child without them destroying your computer! Use with Skype to prevent toddlers pressing keys during a call
Once KeyboardLocker is enabled, you can ONLY use the keyboard to type in the Exit Phrase. You can use the mouse to start your DVD movie playing.
You can also copy the short cut for KeyboardLocker into the StartUp folder so that your computer is automatically locked when it boots up!
KeyboardLocker can absolutely disable Control+Alt+Del (CAD) to prevent your photo kiosk from being hacked!
- to secure photo kiosks
- to secure dedicated servers (such as university print servers)
- to prevent both USB and PS/2 keyboard input on Internet and Photo kiosks
- to protect running processes when the keyboard is cleaned by janitors
- to stop keyboard input when desktop macros are running
- in a home user environment, e.g. to show a DVD to a small child without them destroying your computer.
There are several ways you can start KeyboardLocker:
"c:\Program Files\KeyboardLocker\KeyboardLocker.exe" [/START]
Starts KeyboardLocker in interactive mode. If /START is specified, KeyboardLocker locks immediately.
"c:\Program Files\KeyboardLocker\KeyboardLocker.exe" /NEWPWD=new password [/START]
Starts KeyboardLocker in interactive mode, but with a new default password. If /START is specified, KeyboardLocker locks immediately.
"c:\Program Files\KeyboardLocker\KeyboardLocker.exe" /OLDPWD=old password /NEWPWD=new password
If KeyboardLocker is currently running, it changes the unlock phrase from old password to new password. KeyboardLocker then terminates.
"c:\Program Files\KeyboardLocker\KeyboardLocker.exe" /STOP=password
Unlocks KeyboardLocker if it is currently running and password is correct. KeyboardLocker then terminates.
