Ok here is what I'd like to do:

I want to be able to lock my Windows 7 Professional 64 bit with the desktop still showing.. I am a DJ at a club and when I walk away from the stage, I want to know that no one can go and mess around with the playlist, or any other stuff on my computer for that matter.. But I still want to have the playlist showing while the system is locked down.. Is it possible to do this??

I have seen a website where it has a program that allows you to lock down any program that you'd like to have locked (http://www.windows7download.com/win7-program-lock-pro/shifxvnj.html), but I am not sure if this is a scam or if it's the real deal.

Any help int his would be greatly appreciated.

What you really want to do, is to 'lock down' your keyboard and mouse, so that nobody can use them while you are away from your computer.

This product should do what you want:
Download KidKeyLock to Lock Keyboard and Mouse Functions on your PC

The following 'blurb' talks about a 'laptop', but this program will work on any computer.

If you have toddlers at home and they treat your laptop just like one of their toys, you may want to try this simple software utility. Named as KidKeyLock, it prevents your kids or toddlers from accessing your laptop by locking both the keyboard and mouse selectively.

The software utility is very simple to be used. Once installed and launched, users can do a quick setup on how they intend the program to be used. Basically there are two sections: Mouse locks and keyboard locks. On the Mouse locks, users can select to lock left, middle, right buttons or mouse wheel. Whereas on the keyboard locks, users can choose to lock system key combinations, lock all keys except character keys or lock all of them at once.

Take note that the software utility is meant to prevent your kids by disabling certain input keys temporarily but if they intend to press the hard reset or the shutdown button on the computer itself, then it will not help in that situation. Anyway, if you think that it is helpful, do get a free download here as an immediate solution.
I hope this helps,

This worked like a charm!! Thank you very much.. It was quite funny to see someone try to get on my computer the other night and move songs around.. When they couldn't get it to move, they came down to ask me why and I told them to keep their damn hands off of my computer and ask me first *lol*

Thank you very much again :)
