create a batch file to lock computer?

Is there a free solution to lock my Windows in one mouse click instead
of control-alt-del then select Lock Computer? Something like a batch
file or some kind of script to do that?

Thanks for the help,

Would Windows key + L do?

Or if you need an icon to click on, create a desktop shortcut that runs this
command:

Rundll32.exe User32.dll,LockWorkStation

and click on that to lock (or switch user).

a very easy solution, hit your windows key and while pressing it, press the L
key.
of course this method does depend on having a keyboard that has the windows
key .

There at least 4 ways to lock a WinXP (Home or Pro) workstation,
any of which can be used, regardless of domain membership. (In fact,
I'm not aware of any method of locking a computer that's dependent upon
the presence of a domain.):

1) Use the Windows Key + L hot key.

2) You can press CTRL+ALT+DEL and then <ENTER>, once you've turned off
the Welcome Screen and Fast User Switching. (This is the default in a
domain environment, as FUS is contrary to the domain security paradigm.)

3) You can create a desktop shortcut with
"%windir%\System32\rundll32.exe user32.dll, LockWorkStation" in the
target field. (It is case-sensitive, BTW.) You can then assign a
keyboard shortcut.

4) Set a password protected screensaver, and wait the allotted time
without touching the mouse or keyboard.
