general password

  1. Is there a way to activate a general password to gain access to a pc?
    I have windows ME and the only password that exsists is to start different sessions but im looking for a general password that wont allow you to do anything at all in the computer.
    I looked in the bios (award winning modular) and there are options to set an adminstrative password or a user password but these are only to gain acess to the bios itself.

    Are you sure?

    Anyways, you can use a bootloader that supports passwords and disable booting from floppies and CD-s (BIOS under password too, of course).

    I'm not going to suggest switching to a more secure OS, that would be just too lame :p .
