SuperLock Pro reviewed and rated on

Posted on June 2, 2001


SuperLock Pro is the most secure and full-featured version of SuperLock. Unlike SuperLock Lite, which is designed primarily for single-user machines, SuperLock Pro was designed specifically for machines with multiple users, such as those in labs, computer stores, and many offices.

SuperLock Pro is split into three parts. Admin is where all administrative functions are performed, including editing the user list, setting client preferences, and setting security preferences. Client is what users use to log in. Overseer is a background application that runs all the time and performs various tasks for SuperLock such as handling hot key activations.

There are three levels of users in SuperLock Pro: normal, admin, and super-admin.

Normal users are the lowest-level users in SuperLock Pro. They can only log into Client; they cannot get into Admin. An example of users appropriate for normal status are the students in a school lab.

Admin users, in contrast to normal users, can use Admin. They are permitted to add, remove, and edit normal users at will, but they cannot add, remove, or edit other admin users. Admin users have full access to all of SuperLock Pro’s preferences. In a school lab, the teachers would be appropriately given admin status.

The highest-level user is the super-admin user. This user can do anything, including adding, removing, and editing admin users. There is only one super-admin user at any time. The first time Admin is run, a super-admin user named “Master” is created. The name and password for this user may be edited, but the user may not be deleted. In a school lab setting, the super-admin user would be the technology coordinator or system administrator.


SuperLock Pro is the best desktop security program of the year in the opinion of!
