Cleanup Your Keyboard Without Typing Gibberish
By on June 24th, 2008

How many times have you tried to clean your keyboard while the PC is on? Well isn’t it quite funny to see the mess that is created when you do that.

Keyboard Locker is quite a handy utility for busy professionals like us who think that cleaning the keyboard when the PC is off is a crime.


Keyboard Locker works out of the box and can be run by simply double clicking on the executable. Once the application is running you can lock or unlock your keyboard by clicking and holding both the Ctrl buttons. You can also lock and unlock the keyboard by right clicking on the icon in the taskbar and choosing the lock or unlock.

Once your keyboard is locked you can clean it without having to worry about anything funny happening or some gibberish being typed on the screen.

Keyboard Locker is completely free to use and we would recommend this utility to all those who don’t have time to turn off your PC while cleaning your keyboards.

Note: AVG 8 detects the file as a virus, in order to keep you safe we have run tests with the downloaded file using Avast Online Scanner and all the files have been cleared fine, check the screenshot below.

    I think there is some mistake in the second line which says when PC is off is a crime..i think it should be when PC is on is a crime.
