    You are possibly looking for protection for your icons, which you are mentioning as LOCKING.

    A way to lock the icons are found in windows when you will right click on the TASKBAR, a popup menu will offer you option,LOCK THE TASKBAR.
    Then protective locking can be done by adding PASSWORD to enter windows desktop.
    Another way is to install third party protection in form of locking files and folders.
    Installation of antivirus-antispyware.malwarebyte-firewall is other strong way to protect against external attack.
