    please post in the correct sections please...this does not belong to hardware world

    and you can lock workstation in win2k/xp and you can set password in screen savers.

    that's pretty much all you can do.

    what OS if you are using

    if it is XP then goto start->settings->control panel then into User accounts then select the user then on select add password
    There are 10 types of people in the world those who understand binary and those who dont

    Do you want to lock down your computer when you are away?

    Then first set a password for you account.

    Then in windows 2000 press Ctrl - alt - delete -> lock computer.

    or in xp press Winkey(key with the logo) + L. (you can also do this with the task manager)


    I reconmend first locking the computer typing your password then lock again and see if it really works.
