is a small command-line utility which gives you the ability to
lock and/or start default screen saver on the local computer.
Extract all files from the zip file to a folder on your computer (%windir% for example). Then open a command-line box and just launch the program.
This program may be run on Microsoft Windows ® operating systems (Windows XP/2000/NT), but not on 9x/Me. Windows NT is not implementing the API call to lock the PC in the same
way as XP/2K and 2K3, so locking NT is impossible with that tool. You can just use the "/s /nl" options to run the default screen saver.
The syntax to use WLOCK.EXE from the command line is:
WLOCK.EXE </s> </nl> </y> </?>
||start the default screen saver
||Don't lock the PC
||Suppress prompting for confirmation
