Password Protection?

12 posts in this topic

Would it be possible to password protect my computer (like make the mouse and keyboard not function) so that nobody could use it? disabling the keyboard exept for a press like ctrl+/ or something? would this even be possible? would the scripts i have loaded still work?

If you are running NT, 2k or XP, try CTRL+DEL and choose the option Lock computer.

One problem with it is that if you block the input, you can't type that hotkey.

You could put a time on it or something.

CTRL+ALT+DEL will give control back, but your cus might no that.

@scriptkitty: Is it possible to block all input except a pre-defined exit macro shortcut?

Not that I know of,

Also, Block Imput acts differently depending on OS:

Operating System "BlockInput" Results

Windows 95 No effect.

Windows 98/Me User input is blocked but AutoIt is also unable to simulate input.

Windows NT 4 (Without ServicePack 6) No effect.

Windows NT 4 (With ServicePack 6) User input is blocked and AutoIt can simulate most input.

Windows 2000/XP User input is blocked and AutoIt can simulate most input.

There are other free programs that would solve this though, and possibly comand line driven.

%windir%\system32\rundll32.exe user32.dll,LockWorkStation

works in XP for locking the PC. I've created a shortcut to this on my desktop, and set it to use a single key (the subtract (-) on the numpad) as it's shortcut key, so I tap one key and my PC's locked.

Sweeet...

Sounds good for some things, but when you do that Chris_1013, your screen comes up to the log in box.

I belive that he might be running a macro that uses GetPixelColor or active windows, in which the only active window would be WinLogon.

A great solution for some unattended backups and such, but might not be the best for a game script.

BTW, quick code for that would be:

run('cmd /c %windir%\system32\rundll32.exe user32.dll,LockWorkStation')

There is always the clearscreensaver from the Windows 2000 Resource Kit: Supplement 1. It locks the pc yet keeps the desktop visible.
