  1. Anyone any ideas how I can leave my PC (windows XP pro) running while I'm out but block anyone else from using it?

    Probably the easiest way is to press control+alt+del, and select "Lock computer".

    The second easiest way is to start a password-protected screensaver. They can be started as a normal application, without waiting, by just starting the file. They're in Windows' system32 directory, *.scr.
