The program installs an icon in the systems tray and protects the computer and the data from getting compromised. Clicking on the system tray icon allows users to lock their computers instantly or to configure the application. The process is simple and is more efficient than using Windows locking system.

Once a user clicks on the icon of the application in the system tray, the system gets locked and a locked screen appears.

Users can also choose to specify any other display image or visual effects for the locked screen instead of the default image. Similarly, they can also choose to have a transparent option.

In cases where there are unauthorised attempts to access the system, the application maintains a log of such attempts for unauthorised password entries and incorporates the option of locking the PC and keeping it locked in case of a power failure or when it is switched off and then switched on. The application also has the option of locking the CD and DVD ROM drives thereby preventing strangers from inserting or ejecting disks into the drives. The configuration menu and other application options can also be accessed by clicking on the icon in the tray. While installing the application, it asks for setting up a password, which can be used to change the configuration settings. The application is robust and requires low amount of system resources thereby ensuring that the system performance is not compromised. However, the visual effects and transparent options require a bit more of system resources. The application supports Windows 7, Windows Vista, Windows 2003, Windows XP and Windows 2000.
