The base option to secure My-T-Soft is to enable Operator Security - use My-T-Soft Setup | Configuration | Special Options, then Enable Operator Security. This locks down the tool bar (if configured as visible), and can optionally enable the Minimize option.Here are several items that can make the Operator Security option even more secure.
- Limit the panels available to the user - in most cases, the Alpha/Keyboard panel will be all that is required.
- Be sure to make sure keys such as Alt & possibly Ctrl, and perhaps function keys are hidden using Show & Hide keys. If the keys are not necessary for normal usage, the less available to the user, the better/safer. (My-T-Soft Setup | Configuration | Show & Hide keys). You may also use the Key Options (My-T-Soft Setup | Configuration | Key Options) to disable keystrokes, or remap key actions if there are some specific keys that are problematic in your situation.
- Set the Right-Mouse button action to "Ignore button press" or "Move" (or other benign action) away from the default context menu. (My-T-Soft Setup | Mouse Buttons)
- Once configured, delete the MTSSETUP.EXE/MTSTUTOR.EXE, etc. from the installation folder - refer to the manual for Files / File Notes, etc. http://www.my-t-soft.com/mytsoft/guide/html/filesandinstallationinformation.html for other files that can be removed. But by removing the MTSSETUP.EXE, it simply prevents any possible access to configuration settings via the user.
- Refer to the ConfigPath setting in the Initialization file - ConfigPath=0 and permissions (see below) is most secure. http://www.my-t-soft.com/mytsoft/guide/html/mytsoftini.html
- Make KEYBOARD.KBF/MYTSOFT.INI files Read-only (limited permission for actual user / owned by Administrator), and set ReadOnlyOK=1 in the INI - this prevents the user from modifying any keyboard setting directly or indirectly.
- Be sure actual user that is logged on & using system is a limited user
