    Can anyone recommend any software that can lock the screen when i need to leave my PC other than using the XP screensaver or lock screen feature?

    Why install a third party screen saver when the built in one does exactly what you require?

    Don't forget to start your JavaScript code with "use strict"; which makes it easier to find errors in your code.

    Yeah the built-in Windows functionality for locking your workstation works pretty well and is very effective.

    Just out of interest, why don't you want to use the one that's built into Windows?

    All users of the computer are administrator account types, and we all agree to leave the password blank. So are there good softwares for locking the screen?
