#43, Art K: some information can be gleaned from thier digital certificate, obviously you cannot checkout the certificate by using the GAOTD wrapped version but you can download the demo/trial from their website and look at its certificate details Subject field:

CN = Wen Ming Yang
O = Wen Ming Yang
STREET = Hua Chang Tou 220,Qunsheng,Luoshe
L = Wuxi
S = Jiangsu
PostalCode = 214187
C = CN

eusing.com edition is unsigned and I'd suggest that the lack of signing is the reason why eusing.com edition does not offer the autorun in safe mode as being signed and trusted is a pre-requisite for any kernel level autoruns in safe mode.

BTW eusing.com also hide their whois identity too by not showing the true registrants details but instead the registrants agent webhosting company www.namecheap.com although the real owner of eusing.com is the unnammed webmaster and developer of the freeware utilities, under the rules since they are not named as registrant that namecheap.com legaly own the domain and the real owner that paid to register the domain would have trouble taking the domain away with them to another registrar or hosting company and someone woud have to pay a fee to transfer ownership to change the domains registrant whois data!

"...If this is ‘stolen’ software – i don’t want it! -OR (implied)- If this is ‘re-worked’ by the same author (in ‘this’ manner)..."

(PS: Please let's all get one thing straight: FREE does not mean SAFE.
i mean come on - wasn't the Trojan Horse 'free' ???????????)

#36, Reality Check: Wow, any so called security software that has to resort to underhanded disabling of Task Manager by a local policy addition is waving a flag saying I'm here and can't protect myself...
Use of any half decent 3rd party process managment tool will likely reveal the executable or injected DLL's and where and how it was started. I agree that unsolicited disabling of task manager in any windows system is a malicious act and negatively impacts the end users ability to maintain and repair and track activity on their own machine. It also prevents many tests and fixes by support agents instructing end users to try and solve problems on a windows based computer.

#43, Art K, it's probably worse than you suggest, firstly those nodes on the matrix are not all availabe at each node, only the imediatly adjacent nodes are avalaible at any one time, you cannot repeat a node in succession either.

And if it does not change your windows login password (which it should not or that would screw up MS windows networking authentication) then it likely acts as a front end to the CTRL+ALT-DEL login interface and stores the users credentials internally in a hopefully strongly encrypted form.

Is it impossible to conceive that founding is one thing and developing another? I could have founded my company in the cold stoneage times and still steal software nowadays.

Who founded a site first is not the same as also having all the rights of being the genuine developer.

You cannot be sure and therefore one should not accuse anyone from stealing.

Computer user account passwords are designed to keep an honest person honest and to protect you from those in your immediate area. They are of little value when it comes to protecting your information from someone with the intentions of stealing your computer or accessing your data as passwords can be cracked in a matter of a few minutes by just about anyone with even minimal computer skills. This program, and those like it, do provide better protection as they cannot be so easily bypassed by the average computer user. However, they can be bypassed using a live cd which has a tool to load and edit the registry hive.

The best method of protecting your personal data is to encrypt it. For those with Windows Ultimate or Enterprise (Vista and Win 7) or Enterprise and Professional Windows 8, BitLocker is virtually impossible to decrypt. The same can be said for TrueCrypt. There is one software vendor, ElcomSoft, out of Russia which claims to have a software capable of retrieving the password to the encrypted files by retrieving it from the computer's memory dump files. However, the software is very pricy and probably not feasible unless you are attempting to recover information from Bin Laden's computers.

This software, in my opinion, is an effective means of protecting your computer and personal data from the average person. It was designed not only to provide security, but to provide a fun way to have security at the same time.

I see quite a few post complaining about the price tag. Of course those type post are always readily available here no matter what the given software. Software vendors spend countless hours and a great deal of money both designing and promoting their software. While I agree that some vendors appear to be overly proud of their products, most are reasonable. Yes, there are freeware available. However, you better believe the vast majority of freeware will try to slip a toolbar, software updater or some other form of advertisement in. Ashampoo comes to mind when thinking of this. These type intrusions can often be avoided by choosing the custom installation method. However, some do not provide that option.

re Giovanni's recommendation, GrekSoft-Easy-Folder-Lock. This program stores the password in plain text in '...AppData\Roaming\encrypted.folderlock' when it's closed and '...AppData\Roaming\temp123.txt' when it's open, and both files can be opened with Notepad by anybody, anytime.

This is something they'd use as a plot device in a cheesy sci-fi movie shown late at night on the Food Channel or the Golf Network in which everyone forgets or doesn't know the correct pattern until the hero recognizes it in a cloud just before the storm hits or the dog accidentally draws it in the dirt while scooting around on his rear or someone sees it reflected in the ceiling mirror above the heart-shaped hottub after the bubblebath suds begin to subside and the bubbles from the evening's all-you-can-eat curried bean burritos lazily float to the surface to form the pattern visible rightway-round in the ceiling mirror above...then they boot up the computer and immediately use it to Google for a way to make sure that nothing like this can ever be installed on it again.

Running an older version of XUS PC-lock, I did have just that problem: not that I forgot my pattern, but the touch-pad on my netbook was off, by some amount and it wasn't reading the pattern I was entering properly. After failing 3 times, it let out this loud, annoying siren-like sound for a time, then it just up and let me try again. What I eventually ended up doing (I think) was pulling the battery from the netbook to reset its memory; then it was easy to get back in.

What this means is that (at least that old version of) XUS PC-lock is a cute idea but, in reality, is naught but a toy. I would not rely on this to keep my machine secure at all.

If there is any doubt about Ashraf's analysis one only has to take it a bit further. It appears that Ashraf stopped at the domain owner. Looking at the IP owner, using.com was first registered in 1997 - way before xuspclock.com. In addition, the registered owner of xuspclock.com is WhoisGuard, a company that hides the true owner of the domain. Highly suspicious. What have they got to hide?

#18 gergn - Attaching a different version number doesn't change the underlying code. Both sites and GAOTD display a three by three matrix.
==========================
Regarding the question of what to do if you forget the pattern - think about it It is hardly likely that the author completely rewrote the Windows logon and security infrastructure. Far more likely the app uses the pattern to generate a logon string which it then sends to the Windows logon manager to use as a password. Passwords will be stored in the SAM hive no matter how that password is derived. If you forget your unlock pattern it would be the exact same condition (and solution), as forgetting your logon password: Google logon password recovery. This usually means booting up with a Linux based utility that clears your old password. (This works fine unless you used Windows to encrypt your data. Then you are SOOL unless you can recover your old password.

In thinking more about this, it looks like this is basically a cute gimmick that is quite insecure. A regular password draws upon a character set of 52 letters, 10 digits and a dozen or so punctuation marks. A three by three matrix is only nine symbols. Figure out what those nine symbols are and a password cracker will make short work of breaking in.

This software does not provide any security what so ever if you have USB or even DVD boot disk to start the windows.
All of the files on the main hard drive can be accessed, copied, removed and there is no protection what so ever.

What all seem to be missing in the difference between Eusing and XUS -- and the REAL (seeming) benefit of this vs. Windows password or Eusing -- is that this is *apparently* secure. Eusing can be subverted easily in safe mode and the exploits to Windows password are abundant.

Basically, XUS' claim here is that NO ONE (at least, no one below the gov't) can get access to your PC if they don't have the code. Whether the claim is true or not isn't tested, of course.

IN FACT, it would *seem* that this works only in Windows and that your disk could still be accessable in DOS mode. The only way that might not be true (unless they encrypt the disk like TrueCrypt, which is almost certainly not the case) would be to change the MBR ... and if THAT is true then this is just a disaster waiting to happen. I wouldn't touch it in such a case with a 10 foot pole.

The bottom-line: The answer to #2 would seem to be to enter repair mode (F8) and fix the problem OR to enter in command line mode instead of safe mode and copy your data before putting a new copy of Windows on your machine. Restore from repair mode should also work if you have a restore point.

The OTHER bottom-line is that this offering isn't all that secure. Better than Windows password but hardly a deterrent to a determined attacker of even limited knowledge.

Final judgment: Why would anyone bother with this?

#2 I'd suggest that you are unlikely to get a sensible PUBLIC response from the developer answering to how to recover your access if you forget or become unable to enter your unlock pattern since the answer would negate the entire security model of the tool.

Personaly unless the lock is fully system wide and is active in safe mode, I'd suspect you could use safe mode to uninstall the program and then wipe any user based application files and then re-install and use the default unlock pattern. But thats just a guess based upon the other freeware incarnation of this that Ashraf brought to our attention.

Other likely solutions could be if you are running Vista or above use a recovery boot disk that allows you to do an offline system restore to a point back in time before the product was installed if you have one. Or do the same in safe mode if you can access an account in safe mode.

Standard disclaimers apply, the above are just logical suggestions and in no way based upon any experience running this application. No liability is expressed, implied or accepted for any loss of data or functionality experienced by trying this application on the basis that any of the above IDEAS might save your butt in the event of some crash or loss of memory occours. :-) Try it in a virtual machine first to evaluate the security and the recovery methods that may work!
I would but it does not inerest me long enough to bother with.

I decided to give this a try & installed it. After a reboot (unrelated), when my windows desktop loaded I went to open task manager to kill some extraneous startup programs that eat memory & I was denied access to my own laptop task manager. It says "Task manager has been disabled by your admininstrator."
Now the only person who uses this laptop is ME. I certainly have no administrator & I certainly did not disable my own task manager.

The only thing that could have disabled my task manager is today's GAOTD since that's the only thing that was installed!

Although when I clicked on the program icon, it told me XUS PC lock is already running, the laptop doesn't appear to be locked since I'm able to open other programs & come online and write this comment!!!!!

Not only is this program a rip-off of Eusing's freeware app which btw looks excellent as do many other Eusing freewares, it's behaving as malware when it disables my task manager but fails otherwise!

I was recently looking for a program to lock my work pc in case I need to get up and grab a cup of coffee and found ClearLock. It's freeware and with a click on the icon the pc is locked. Probably not forever, but it sure will stop the snooping coworker until I get back.

There is also Windows+L which brings you to the Windows log in screen ...

The pattern thing is not for me, but if my kid would be younger, that would be a fun way to let it start up the pc. Thanks for offering it.

Sounds pretty iffy. Is it a freehand pattern you do with the mouse, or do you choose certain dots in a certain order on the lock screen? If a freehand pattern, it would be very hard to do exactly the same thing more than once. If you choose certain dots on the lock screen, does timing matter?

What will happen if you can’t remember you lock pattern?

If you did not enable auto-lock at Windows startup in safe mode option. You can reset to the default pattern via reinstalling XUS PC Lock. If you did, We have no idea too. So you had better backup your lock pattern when you reset your lock pattern every time. You can backup your lock pattern in your flash disk or email box which you can reach it via another computer. Or print your lock pattern directly.

Its a good thing that we have Ashraf to do these tests and offer alternatives. Does appear someone copied someone . I guess you could find out who put theirs on the market first if you wanted to delve that deep into it . But never argue with a free program as opposed to a shareware program . These computer pattern locks are fine if you have the memory capacity to remember the pattern . I can't recall off the top of my head but it was offered awhile back on here a face recognition software that employs use of your web cam and works quite well . Sit down at the computer it recognizance's the face you set it up with and your good to go . If your not that person you can't log on and below that you can log on with your password . As i say the name escapes me and we have enough to remember without trying to remember a pattern we locked up a computer with . Just an opinion one is free to try this if your brain can remember .

Re Ashraf. I was not surprised. The freeware version is 2.1 and uses a 3 by 3 matrix.. The giveaway is version 4.1 thst uses a 5 by 5 matrix. In 2011 is now freeware version was given away here twice in 2011.

It is quite common that an older version is given away. And that the creator switched to another seller is also not uncommon. Never heard of a writer switching to another publishing house?

Nice review by Ashraf. I believe they are from the same developer, not necessarily copying from another. There are a lot of softwares that are very highly suspicious of such character, being from the same developer, sold to different vendors. So that the vendor, although giving the imnpression that they are the ones who develop them, actually fails to give adequate, timely support because they are simply the middle man directing both traffic. This can be highly confusing when both the vendor and developer have access to the same website of the software, so that what features the developer says, may significantly differ from what the vendor say in their answers to the forum discussion -- and what we have? CHAOS! CHAOS!! immeediately promised features that take years to realize, or that never will be realized, and all sorts of disappointments for the buyers who were fooled by their forums. On 3 softwares that this happen, take a look at the quite popular Rollback Rx, compared with the quite unpopular Ayrecovery, and the free Comodo Time Machine. NOBODY can ever fail to note the REMARKABLY identical fingerprint of the common developer, working in different degree for all 3 vendors - probably for the different pay given them.

What happens if you can’t remember your lock pattern and lose the key of this GAOTD after a PC crash?

30 $ for a tool like this??? Come on...

* Predator (==> My Personal First Choice)
It can lock and unlock your PC, even if your Windows session is still open, with a USB Thumb Drive.
So if you need to go away from your PC for a while, the only thing you have to do is just to remove your USB drive from your machine.
In such way the keyboard and mouse are immediately disabled and the screen darkens, until you put again your USB flash drive in place.
This is definitely a clever way to lock your PC without the need to remember the password to unlock it: cool, isn't it?
This magic FREE tool can also record all security-related events in a log file, so as to let you know if intruders have ever tried to use your machine during your absence.

http://www.predator-usb.com/predator/en

Other excellent FREE app to securely lock your PC are also these:

http://sourceforge.net/projects/winlockr
http://www.softpedia.com/get/Security/Lockdown/GrekSoft-Easy-Folder-Lock.shtml
http://www.softpedia.com/get/Security/Lockdown/OSAS-Computer-Locker.shtml
http://www.eusing.com/mazelock/pclock.htm

Usually people are eager to lock their PC because they don't want to share sensitive data with anyone else, is that right?
So, instead of locking your machine, how about hiding your important files in JPEG images, mp3, flv files and even into executable files (exe, msi) for FREE??

http://clotho.ixenity.tk/feature

Finally there is also a cool FREE program called "Desktop Patrol", which in short prevents intruders from freely using your system as much as they like (installing third party software, connecting to open Wireless Networks, accessing to external media, Windows Registry & command prompt, saving email file attachments etc.. ), even if it's actually not locked at all: too good to be true, right? Wrong!!

@1 Ashraf, what i find particularly disturbing is that we have no input from the (either?) author. If this is 'stolen' software - i don't want it! If this is 're-worked' by the same author (in 'this' manner) - i don't want it! i mean how can i trust either version??

Consider this comment a request for the vendor to give an accounting.

(PS: DM to Adam: send your Paypal # to ten_four@aol.com and will help get some blank DVDs).

Regards;

It's always best to create a "system restore point prior to installing a new app, and same with protection as most of us have an advanced way to uninstalling programs including ways to restore our computer to it's former glory.
Hence it is ONLY YOUR PC which knows the password/unlocking-pattern sequence. why not create a system restore point prior to creating the Lock Pattern?

@Charles Mintoff - Then you're not very bright and should get a Mac.
