I would like to be able to lock my Win2000 desktop, but still have the desktop displayed.  If it is locked, moving the mouse will result in a Ctrl-Alt-Delete to login in prompt.  Is there such a screen saver out there?

this queston was asked recently.  There only was is to physically lock the keyboard and mouse (using a keyboard/mouse with an actual key) or to use a KVM type switching box that has security options to lock keyboard and mouse inputs.  There is no way in the OS to do this.  You may also want to check www.download.com for a third party freeware/shareware product that might do the job.
