It would be great if it has a password protection. Without a password, anyone can unlock the keyboard and mouse just by pressing the hot keys nevertheless it is very useful for people working at home that have playful children.

KeyFreeze works on Windows XP, Vista and Windows 7. I tested it under Windows 7 x86 operating system.
