No third party software is necessary. If you set a password on your account and there are no other accounts with administrative privileges, when you press the windows key + L to lock your computer, nobody else will be able to use it while it's locked

Locking Windows usually means you need to step away from the PC and temporarily secure it from being viewed by others what's on your screen. On the other hand, wanting to view the download progress means that you will still sit by the PC, so what's the point of locking it in the first place?

Transparent Screen Lock doesn't work with wither Vista or Windows 7, at least I haven't found anyone interested in using it anyway, and download sites such as Softpedia and BrotherSoft didn't mention anything.

WIN and L key combo
WIN is the key with the wavy flag.

To unlock, you use your password.
