    Hi. I have a HP Pavilion 6830 with Windows Me. When I got the computer, it had WinMe already up and running and I have never had to use a password--ever.

    Well, now I am staying with others and they all use my computer. Problem is one of these users takes advantage and uses the computer to look up all sorts of things when everyone else is out.

    Is there any way that I can password just one person, or even give different people passwords so this can stop? Or better yet, can I password my printer (Lexmard z53)? Or both?
