Windows 7 Master Password
Hey everyone,
First I would like to apologize if this is a repeated question as I am new here and am still learning my way around the site. My question is...This is a family computer so my kids are aloud on when a parent is home which isnt always the case. I would like to know if there is a program that requires a master password entered before the user accounts come up for the user to log into Windows? Any help or direction will greatly be appreciated. Running just your basic store bought pc windows 7 ultimate 32bit. Thanks!

You can try and set a BIOS password. The steps will be different for your computer, but you can start here

Yes, you can also make a new user account and have it made a password. Just co go control panel and user account section, you'll find you're way there.
