    Passwords

    I am running Windows ME, and would like to password protect my computer. How do I set the password, so that it is required? Right now, if I hit escape, the password part is ignored. I do not want unauthorized users having access to my computer.

    You will need to set a password in the bios which will be a hardware password, but there are ways to by pass this.
    The best thing is to upgrade to Windows 2K or XP Pro. Other that that even some third party addins can be by passed.

    Now running HP Pavilion a6528p, with Win7 64 Bit OS.
