Child Lock

Child Lock  (Freeware)
  Lock the keyboard and mouse to stop those wandering little fingers.

Can be set to autolock after a period of inactivity - stops little fingers once you have left the PC.
Can block out windows control keys - switch out of the current application (provided the app is running fullscreen such as a game)
Can slow down the mouse, stop autorepeat - assists young ones just getting used to a mouse and keyboard.

30 Nov 20131.99Internal fix to keyboard & mouse hooks to allow simultaneous vb apps with hooks to work
11 Aug 20121.97Fixed bug when unsetting Autostart in Options, then setting again would cause error
08 Dec 20111.96Minor text change in popup tip for one of the options
31 Oct 20111.95Re-enabled use of AltGr/right Alt key in lock/unlock sequence. Found a keyboard with AltGr for testing and see no problem with it now.
22 Sep 20111.94Removed some code causing problems for people who use the AltGr key. The code was put in originally when using the right Alt key (AltGr) just as an Alt (not for its extended character functionality) caused problems on my keyboard. I no longer have an AltGr key to test so will see how it goes.
29 Jul 20111.93Option to suspend autolocking based on time of day or IP or file exists eg. Autolock works at home where the kids are, but suspended when you are at work
Option to provide a window name that has Unlock key sequence passed straight through. Use if using a remote control program to another PC where both are running ChildLock. Thus unlocking the remote will no longer toggle the Autolock state of the PC you are on.
