WinU is a full Windows user interface replacement with security access control, timeout, logging, web-browser monitoring, remote administration, and many flexible configuration options. It's easy to set up, easy to use, and virtually impossible to circumvent. It has many features heretofore found only in high-end tools, including system stabilization, access control, anti-malware, remote configuration, and web-browser oversight. It includes a LAN-wide management system that cuts the time and effort spent maintaining PCs in the corporate environment. It also features tech support and helpdesk tools that speed problem diagnosis and resolution. Its centralized administration tools are very useful in managing across the LAN, yet WinU is equally valuable on non-networked computers such as standalone public kiosks.

WinU's simplified replacement user interface allows full access to authorized software, yet prevents accidental or malicious system modifications. It lets you specify the amount of time that each program can be used. On each controlled computer, WinU can track up to a million programs on a thousand password/biometric protected desktops per computer. Each desktop can have its own name, appearance, programs, time limits, and security settings. WinU logs all accessed websites, blocks Ctrl+Alt+Del and the Windows keys, makes files or folders read-only or invisible, denies access to unauthorized programs, disables the keyboard at startup to prevent users from bypassing Windows, locks the CD-ROM drive door, and more.

WinU is an excellent way to provide easily-understood access to novice users. It is useful for businesses that want to let employees use only authorized applications, for schools and public institutions that need to give patrons access to specific programs yet safeguard the computer against tampering. The user has full access to authorized software, but can't change the computer's setup or delete important files. Nowadays more and more people use computers, yet they know less and less about them. To address this, corporate and institutional system administrators worldwide rely on WinU's easy-to-use interface to reduce training costs so new staff can use computers fast, and at the same time prevent accidental or malicious computer modifications. Thus, systems aren't "out of service" and users can do their work without interruption.

WinU allows the administrator to monitor and control all computers LAN-wide from one central location. This includes the ability to update, logoff, shut down, reboot or reconfigure WinU stations anywhere on the LAN, send popup text messages to individual Full Control stations or broadcast them to all WinU computers.

WinU can monitor all browser activity, log all accessed websites, and deny access to unauthorized sites. It can make files or folders read-only or invisible to prevent unauthorized access. It can control any window, such as Options dialogs or Control Panel applets, through which the user might change settings or access the file system. It can deny or password-protect Ctrl+Alt+Del and similar keys. It can prevent users from bypassing Windows at startup, lock the CD-ROM drive to prevent removal of valuable CDs, and provide a minute-by-minute audit trail of all system activity.

WinU's One Click System Stabilization allows the user full access to authorized software yet prevents accidental or malicious system modifications. This prevents new software from being installed by anyone except you, the system administrator. It also prevents any executable virus, spyware, malware, adware, or Trojan from running, whether it is an older 'known' virus or a brand new 'unknown' virus. Viruses, spyware, malware, adware, worms and Trojans are programs, and you (the administrator) have not set your Bardon product to allow them to run. So even if your anti-virus software has not yet been updated to identify the new nasties, they will not be able to affect your computers. If the virus program can't run, it can't infect your systems, or delete files, or take over your computer.

WinU features Intrusion Control which watches for malware-like behavior in real-time on the computer, and prevents nasties including spyware, malware, adware, and Trojans from setting themselves up on your system in the first place. It can protect silently and automatically, or ask what it should do when it discovers a questionable situation. The administrator can even customize it to handle different kinds of attacks in different ways.

WinU can also lock down data flow to/from USB ports and similar external sources, such as CD and DVD drives. This can prevent unauthorized data leaving the computer (data theft) as well as preventing unauthorized data entering the computer (spyware, malware, adware, Trojans, and similar nasties).

"If you're looking for a way to secure your computer, you need look no further. I've looked at other menu/security systems for Windows and WinU is the BEST I've seen, bar none. It's complete, it's flexible, and it's rock solid. Highly recommended." (PC World Online)

"A great way to enhance the safety and security of your Windows computer." (Microsoft Online,

"Sophisticated security and access-control features ... [the user] couldn't tamper with sensitive Windows system files, our Web browser, or any other off-limits areas. Highly configurable ... numerous options for changing program icons, setting time limits, providing customized warning messages, applying sound to system events, and so on. WinU can keep intruders out of your system ... ideal for security seekers on tight budgets." (PC Magazine)

"WinU is a Windows security product that actually works. Most of the security software I have seen that tries to provide access control for Windows isn't worth the investment. WinU is a notable exception. This product is worth trying out." (InfoWorld)

"WinU lets businesses and schools permit public access to their computers without risking accidental or malicious system modifications." ("Top Ten Security Tools", PC World)

"Put an end to unwanted tweaks to your computer with WinU from Bardon Data Systems. This software creates a virtual desktop over Windows and allows users to access only those programs, files, and folders you've placed on the desktop. WinU is the perfect solution for someone who isn't familiar with computers and how they operate. With this program you can turn your computer into a kiosk without having to learn how to manage user permissions." (TechTV)
