Winlock is a free software that can lock any open windows so that no one can make any changes to them. It will be possible to minimize or maximize windows, but it won’t be possible to use mouse or keyboard on them, hence preventing any changes to open windows.

The useful application Winlock is a free tool that allows users to lock selected Explorer applications as well as access to private information or documents. The Internet is rapidly becoming a necessity in any home or business and thus the desire for each of us to have the best computer access security is also becoming a necessity. Winlock will make sure any and all your private information is unavailable to prying eyes. This free utility allows other users to use your computer, but will not allow them access to  open programs or files that the computer owner has “locked”. This includes email, browsers, and other applications.

If you want to completely prevent some application from running, you can try Windows Application Blocker. And to password protect files, you can try Conceal or Right Click Encrypter.
