    thanks yenscasper for posting an add to RAR Repair Toolbox!

    Dude. Print screen, paste into paint, crop and save as jpg, upload. That's what the button is for.

    you should simply use the "lock" button in windows next to the "shut down", "hibernate", "sleep" and "restart" buttons. why so much hassle.

    I used this to keep my computer protected from my cousin and it worked perfectly!Rated4.5*
