How can I password protect my laptop?

Asked By 10 points N/A Posted on -

I have come to find out that my roommate is using my laptop when I am not around. I wouldn't mind, but he recently got a virus on it and I had to spend hours cleaning it. Is there a way for me to password protect my laptop so that he cannot access it? I've asked him not to use it but I can tell he is still doing so. Thanks for your help.

How can I password protect my laptop?


Yes of course, you can password protect your laptop very easily so that anybody else cannot access it, by simply following these steps,

  • Log into the computer as the administrator >> go to start >> control panel >> user accounts >> user accounts >> manage user accounts >> select the account that you want to set a password >> click on Reset password >> type the password >> confirm the password >> ok >> ok

However, apart from password protecting the computer, you can also follow other security measures like disabling CD or USB booting, HD encryption, using VPNs & simply locking up the laptop.
