    Hi all,
    I'd like to stick a password on my computer, but I'm not sure how.
    I'd like it so that when you turn on my comp you can't get in unless you know the password.

    Can someone let me know how.

    Thanks in Advance

    Scott

    Control panel, user accounts, and set a password for you account. Then all you have to do to lock your system is click on the windows and L key at the same time . then to log back on you have to enter the password.
