One of the most powerful features is the ability to block any program, dialog window, or popup box based on keywords applied to the window title. This method enables blocking any program or utility regardless of file nameformat or folder location and no matter how it’s launched. This is useful for disabling system utilities that may not be reliably blocked using other methods such as restricting the executable file.
Window title filtering is also useful for blocking specific webpages at sites like YouTube, without blocking the whole site, where there’s a lot of mixed content and where the URL is not indicative of the content.
The program is rock solid, no bugs, I’ve never had it crash after several months of daily (always on) usage now.
The internet filter enables blocking EVERYTHING EXCEPT trusted sites, exactly what I want. Both the window and URL filters allow wildcards. The URL filter is insensitive to prefixes (http, https, wwww, etc) so you don’t need to worry about URL formats.
A long (80 character) password is great if you want to use WinLock to discourage yourself from going to time-wasting websites.
A system setting prevents WinLock’s background process from being killed with Task Manager, or Task Manager can be blocked completely.
The only feature I wish WinLock had is the ability to block pc usage during a certain time period, not worth deducting a star.
