There are several people in my house who use my computer and I set my profile to have a password...one of the other ppl were offended when they saw it was passworded...is there a way to keep others out of my stuff without the password being so obvious...suchas when you move the mouse over my name the password box comes up...can I fix it where it doesn't show until my name is clicked on...or is there another way...thx!

DoubleHelix has hit the nail on the head with the logon issue, but if I may say something about the other person being offended?

I dont know if saying this is acceptable,(if it isn't I will edit it accordingly, just lemme know, oh gods of the forums :D ) but I say screw 'em. In today's spyware/adware/hacker riddled world running rampant with identity theft and worse, there's nothing I see wrong with trying to protect what is yours.
If that includes data that belongs to you, then password protected it must be.

Even if you are just trying to protect your personal stash of pr0n(as long as it not of the illegal/immoral type of media) from prying eyes, then even that is private and protectable.(I'm not even gonna deny my ownership of a few small pieces of prized pr0n. :D )

If someone feels excluded or left out or even insulted that they are locked out of what isn't theirs, I don't see why that should be something you need to change to cater to their fragile ego.

But, I dont know the whole story here so it could be a different situation than I am imagining. Are these other people family members? or just roomates?

and I apologize for the "harsh?" word up there. Just the way my opinions are set.

and now back to our regularly scheduled thread..........
