PrinterLock is a windows application that disables printing by enabling or disabling the print spooler service. There is virtually no security around this type of lock and it can be defeated by manually starting the service or removing the PrinterLock application from the control panel.
The purpose of this application is to provide a very low security method of disabling printing on a windows PC. This is often useful when children or other printer-unfriendly users are on a PC using an account that may need to print from time to time. It is a workaround for creating a separate user account solely for the purpose of blocking causal printing.
