Another thing that I would like to see is the ability to lock down the 
windows and not allow the user to drag and drop windows around, after a 
particular configuration is set up.  Here is what happened to me in the 

We spent alot of time before the contest setting up the postiioning of 
all of the windows to get everything laid out exactly the way we wanted.  
we sabe the configuration to the writelog.ini file.  However, during the 
contest, some users weren't that familiar with the program, and began to 
accidently drag windows around and screw up the screen.  It is very easy 
to do, and for contester that use CT, and aren't careful with WL, it can 
happen.  When that happended, we had to exit the program, and restart it 
with the saved 'default' configuration.  

I would like to see a setting in the writelog.ini that would not allow 
you to drag a window around if that configuration flag is 
set.  Something like CHANGEWINDOWS = NO   If this flag was 
set to YES, then you could drag a window, resize a window, or 
add a new window to the screen.

I would appreciate your consideration of this enhancment.
