    Hello, I’am trying to set my mouse button to ClickLock setting but the window shown in this page is different from the one I get. I do have a Vaio Sony with W7 Home premium, and I am getting mad as I almost don’t know how to use the mouse without this great setting… which I have been using for years now!
    Thanks for your help !
    Best regards,
    José Caldas

    Please Jose, have you got a solution? I turned all the in the UserPreferencesMask in the registry without success!

    I have to correct me: It’s Bit 7 (hex-value 80) of the second Byte in HKCU\Control Panel\Desktop\UserPreferencesMask.
    But there is a delay of about 2 seconds you have to hold down the left mouse key before it locks.
    Can somebody tell me how to get red of this delay?
