Canceling the password dialog doesn't work
Some program tasks are Administrator and WinGuard cannot close them automatically. You can close the manually by click the button next to Cancel. Just right click the program task in the Taskbar and click Close, return to the password dialog and click Cancel.

Cannot lock a specific Program
WinGuard only blocks the exact match of the Window Title. For example:��Microsoft Word - Document 1”. Simply entering ��Microsoft Word” would not work. The best thing to do is open the application you want to lock and on the on Tasks tab of WinGuard Config tool, click browse and add/lock the program that way.Also, putting the program in Startup may make the program load twice, as it already has a load entry in the registry.Final thing to try is, open Config tool, on Tasks tab, uncheck the option “Enable Task lock", click Apply, then recheck it and click Apply and close. Restart your computer.
