Will SofTest permanently control or lock down my laptop?

May 26, 2016 Ryan Murphy

No. SofTest only locks down your laptop during the exam(s) you are taking. Following the exam, the computer will return to normal function.

If the event your computer does not return to its normal state before the exam, please reference the following support articles on: 

  • What do I do if my computer is missing buttons, splash screen or background image?
  • How do I resolve a black screen, missing task manager, or power options? (Windows 8 & 10)
  • How do I resolve a black screen, missing task manager, or power options? (Windows Vista & 7)

You do not need to uninstall SofTest after the exam, but you may do so, as with any software program.
