I have 4 monitors, two of which are kiosks and are just playing looped powerpoints but the other two I need to have interactive. How can I limit my cursor movement to just monitors 1 an 2 an not allow any interaction with 3 and 4?

An ideal solution, I think, would have a hot key that allows access to 3 & 4 when you want it. – Iszi Jul 16 '12 at 15:28
you could have no mouse and a touch screen for monitors 1 and 2. Monitors 3 and 4 are regular LCDs and therefore cannot be altered. – kobaltz Jul 16 '12 at 16:39
Unfortunately my situation involves the 4 (huge) monitors being mounted on a wall. It would be very awkward for the users to use a touch screen of this size and in this position. I have a wireless keyboard and mouse that they will be using. – user1055650 Jul 17 '12 at 8:13

Please post back if it works on your 4 Monitor setup

From what i gather from that webpage, Murgeemon allows you to "disable/enable" monitors. -But doing so simply turns the monitor off. I still want to be able to view them, I just dont want any acciental interaction with them. – user1055650 Jul 16 '12 at 16:00
According to the site "Lock Mouse is a feature of the MurGeeMon software utility that allows one to restrict the mouse cursor movements to a single monitor or restrict mouse on a monitor to prevent accidental straying of the mouse cursor to the other monitor. " – David Murray Jul 16 '12 at 16:06
Thanks for your help David, I've now downloaded at tried both of these appications but they can only seem to restrict mouse movement to one monitor at a time. I need to restrict it so that its able to move across 2 of the 4 monitors. – user1055650 Jul 17 '12 at 8:22
