quick question

hey how do i make it so when my screensaver is stopped it goes straight to my xp login screen? my sisters been on my pc and i want her *** off. its my computer and she uses it when nobody is home(best one in da house) and shes getting a bunch of crappy *** music and im getting pissed, and my parents are like "well its not your internet" WTF i bought the router. *****es, if it wasnt for me, thered be no home network. but theyre retarded sometimes. i reckon this is the easiest way, and somehow, i forgot how to do it(make it return to the login screen). it seems so newbie, i know. i hate computers btw.

you can set a password protect for your screensaver, just go into the screen saver setup and set your password

But, can't you by-pass both a protected screensaver and the XP log-in screen?
You can get past the screensaver by rebooting and getting past the XP log-in screen is as simple as just logging in anonymously. You'll have to password protect the entire operating system if you want to be serious. I have my computer passworded at the BIOS so you can't even boot up the computer, including the floppy drives, so you can't do **** until the password is entered. You have an XP system, which makes it a little harder to get to the BIOS setup, but I'm sure your BIOS has a password set-up.

Another alternative is to buy some third-party application lockdown software. Basically, it's software that passwords all functions within Windows once you turn it on. No operation can be performed while it is on unless a password is entered. Also, if you try to reboot it, it just stays on so you can't bypass it. The problem with this route is that the user can still get into Windows and although they can't do anything they can still reboot, which still won't let them in, but it's not good to keep loading Windows and cold-booting, which a frustrated user is likely to try a few times. Passwording at the BIOS eliminates this risk, because the BIOS is as far as they can get without a password, so rebooting a bunch of times from the BIOS does not damage your disks.

if you disable the guest account and lock your computer the only way they can get in is buy going into safe mode. If your sister is smart enough to do that then yea the bios password is your only option

if you dont have a password set for when you boot windows up, the a screen savor PW wont matter anyway..
