[FONT=Geneva][SIZE=1][COLOR=blue] How do you prevent people from logging on to windows it self without typing in a password? We have seperate users so that other people in my household cannot get on the computer, due to misuse of the system, but even if we log off instead of having to type a password when prompt to do so they can just push cancel. Windows and everything still loads up. How can I prevent this from happening so that only people with passwords can get on? PLEASE HELP!?!?!

Afraid only Windows XP has 'proper' account passwords for each user which can't be easily circumvented. passwords on earlier consumer versions of Windows were not intended to be secure ---- they just loaded a different desktop according to each user's preferences, but anyone could easily bypass it just to get into Windows.
