Hi all,
I once receive a mail (excel file with macro) from a friend. Upon clicking a button it locks my window (desktop). I have deleted the file and my friend does not now have it either. It works as simillar as Window+L or Alt+Ctrl+Del and then lock.

could someone help me with this code?

Thanks in advance.

You should be able to use LockWorkStation that comes as part of user32.dll. I can't remember how to code VBScript, but this link should help you make some progress :
