Hi,
I was thinking of a program that would lock the current state of another program and will not let you change the settings of the locked program till you provide the password. For eg. If I lock my Instant Messenger client, no one will be able to log me out or change any of my settings until I unlock it with the password.

this is an interesting idea, and could be done by spying on windows and setting components to "disabled"..
but writing a full program to do this and locking unlocking, specifying windows to apply to, etc.
def. not snack material.

I know this topic hasn't been touched in a while but the program idea sounds wonderful.  I tried it out and it works great.  Almost a little too good.  The only problem I had was it was able to lock my task bar preventing me from using the task bar or even unlocking the task bar. I had to log off the computer to get it back.  I don't know if there is a work around for this or not but I just wanted to share that warning from my experience.  Other than that I love it.

I have a problem when using this, it sucks up alot of resources (About 40%-70% CPU usage) when there's no windows locked, but when I lock even a single window it drops down to normal ranges and appears to idle like any other program... Any idea what's up?

Though I might seem a bit impatient, I'm just making sure I'm not being completely overlooked... Noone's going to reply?... I'm sorry if I'm burdening anyone, I just want to become an active member here. (There's not much to post about for me, yet...)
