What it does:
Upon installing, it will load a skin where it will ask you to enter your password for the lock screen. As you enter your password, it will load a lock button. If you press this lock button, it will bring up the lock screen. As the lock screen loads, it will execute a batch file in it that will kill the process, "explorer.exe", disabling your taskbar. Also, it stays on top of everything else so there is no way out (There is one way out.). If you entered the wrong pasword, it will prompt you to enter it again. If you entered the right password, it will unload the lock screen and execute another batch file that runs the process, "explorer.exe" , re-enabling your taskbar. Also, it loads again the lock button.
ONE WAY OUT IN CASE ANYTHING GOES WRONG.
Ctrl + right click, then unload skin. I can't find a way how to bypass this. Also, if you do this, explorer.exe will still remain closed, so you have to run it in the task manager.
UPDATE: I found another way out. Ctrl+Allt+Delete or Ctrl+Shift+Esc to run the task manager and close Rainmeter.exe. But, I found a way to disable the task manager when the lock screen is up and enable it when it goes out using batch files to call registry files. The only problem is, you have to edit the batch files.
Task Manager Disabling/Enabling instructions:
- The registry files are named disableCtrlAltDel.reg and enableCtrlAltDel.reg. They are located in the Registry Files folder of the skin. Copy the path to this folder.
- Edit the batch files, OnTskMngr.bat and OffTSkMngr.bat in a text editor. Replace the bath in the batch files with the path of the registry files in the Registry Files folder.
- Save the batch files. (Optional: Disable UAC to avoid the prompt when opening or closing the lock screen.)
Code: Select all
@echo off regedit.exe /s "Path_to_Registry_Files_folder\disableCtrlAltDel.reg""
Any suggestions, good ideas or comments are appreciated.
