How can I make a special purpose screenlock.The pc is locked with Special Screen lock or screensaver.User enters his name (not windows user name)screen unlocks along with a countup timer started (timer cannot be closed and always on top, minature size).The details are logged to a file eg:notepad, ie; name of person and starting time.On user inactivity Windows default sceen saver is started to check wheather user is there.On further inactivity screen is locked and this activity is also logged.

    I have accomplished a good amount of this for you. I have emailed you, so email back if you want it. If anyone knows how to disable ALT-TAB, etc that is one of the few things left on the list to make it un-easily bypassed.

    I believe the solution to that is to make your program a screensaver.
    I believe they have some kind of extra priviledges, like being on-top all the time until closed.

    The way I see it... Well, it's all pretty blurry

    I managed to create it on a background that is set full screen, no taskbar button & acts as a flying through space screen saver when the login prompt has been up for 10 seconds (for test purposes). The login prompt is always on top, but you are able to switch to a different task with ALT-TAB, although I haven't played with this yet, it should be easily fixed. Also, when logged in, it shows a small bar on the top right (80% screen width from left so it doesn't cover Min/Max/Close buttons) that shows user name & time active. If clicked, it logs the user out with a verification.

    Pretty much, it needs to disable the Task Switching, auto logout after a period of inactivity (should be easy) and probably a few forgotten items.

    I feel sorry for the late reply as I was out of my home town didnot get a chance to browse the internet.But I have emailed you. I am in need of the one you described. I have to use it on cyber cafe. All the available softwares are client-server based and compicated.That is why I thought of something like this.So that a layman could also handle a cafe. Please let me trial what you have made and I am sure we could make some thing out of it and help others who need a similar one.

    Wow. Thanks. It works perfectly. All I need to do is add an auto-logout and it's finished I think. This is a great program!
