WinLock
Prevent unauthorised users from accessing important or potentially dangerous resources on your PC

WinLock is a powerful security tool that allows you to take strict control over what other users can do on your PC.

If your kids are always messing around with your system settings, for instance, then in a few clicks you can prevent them from accessing the Registry editor, Control Panel, Display Properties, or even My Computer. Only someone who knows the central password (that'll be you, hopefully) will be able to bypass the protection and use the blocked settings.

You can also customise Explorer, perhaps hiding the Folder Options menu, or disabling the right-click context menu. You're able to set up User Account Control to suit your needs (and be sure that it'll stay that way). While the Drives pane allows you to prevent specified drives from being displayed in Computer or Explorer, and can block access to removable drives altogether.

WinLock is also able to prevent access to particular files, folders, or applications.

You can prevent users from viewing particular web sites.

If you're feeling really strict, then you can even limit the length of time that your PC can be running, so for example after a couple of hours it'll automatically close down.

Or, if you prefer a more hands-off approach, then you can have WinLock record the changes that your users make in its log file, for review later.

Version 7.2 changes include:

- Desktop and webcam snapshots, block portable devices and more.

Verdict:

If someone's messing with important Control Panel settings on your PC then it's best to make sure they understand why this is a bad idea. But if that's not an option, then WinLock can help - it's easy to use, and allows you to lock down your system in many different ways

WhatsApp Messenger 2.16.20

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.
