Default I need a good program for..

Hey, my sisters constantly get on my computer, I can't stand it, I have very large downloads running with BitTorrent, and they always mess it up, I was wondering how I could make it so they cant get on, even if they shut down the comp and turn it back on, or something so they cant get on without a password, if anyone knows how to do this, or has a program plz reply asap.. I do have a screensaver with a password, but its easy to get out of.. Alt Tab :-P

I would install Win2000 or XP. Or do a google for password protection/acces. Or take your mouse with you everytime you leave ur comp.

Here's a program that works for that quite well (will start automatically if you enable the option, when rebooted, if it was enabled during power-off).

is their list of products. They have a trial on all of them... and strangely enough, the one I downloaded (supposed to be a 30day trial) has not bothered me in over four months! Anyway, I use this one, "Hide Files and Folders":

They have a couple of options there.
