Recommended Posts

Hi,

When my PC starts I like to lock automatically the Screnn for 1 Minute, that no one can use the Mouse.

After my Program hast started in Fullscreen 1 minute is reaches and the programm can normally be used by mouse.

 

My problem ist, that I need administration-acces every newstart to push ok.

Can you help me?

I do not find a solution.

Don't use the mouse to automate whatever it is you're trying to automate. Use ControlClick or something less reliant on mouse movement and clicks.

@Thommes maybe it's just me but I don't quite understand what you're asking to get help about.

What is the issue? You say that 'My problem ist, that I need administration-acces every newstart to push ok.' What does that mean? That you have a working script that does what you want it to but it requires admin access so you always have to click YES to allow it to make changes to you pc, hence the mouse doesn't get locked until you click Yes / OK ?

BlockInput requires Admin credentials to work now on Windows 8+, it's a Windows thing.

That's why I asked if that was the issue because if I remember correctly you can create UAC white list using Task Manager.

Instead of being cryptic, why don't you just post what it is you're talking about in plain English without beating around the bush?

I'm not being cryptic at all. I was going to wait for the OP to confirm that this is actually his issue and only then try to find what I think I remember worked...

But since it's you, I looked for it and I found it. Here it is... https://lifehacker.com/how-to-eliminate-uac-prompts-for-specific-applications-493128966

I just tried and it works.

And since we're talking about a script that should run on startup, it's even easier...

If I understand the OP's question... You could to this:

  • Write a script that blocks using BlockInput() and Sleep().
  • Compile it.
  • Open Task Scheduler (taskschd.msc /s) on your computer
  • Make a new task to run as the system account.
  • Set the action to run your compiled blocking script 
  • Set the trigger to be the logon of any user. 
  • Test for effectiveness.

Alright, I just made a small _BlockInput UDF. I'll post it tomorrow in Example.  It is blocking all keyboard and mouse input without any UAC interference. Stay tune...

 

Done !
