Hi
My windows XP is setup for two users, however the pc does not prompt any of the users for a password.
can you tell me how to change the settings for the login screen to prompt the user for a pssword, also when i leave the computer unattended for while, how do i get the pc to lock itself and prompt me for a password.

Hey rookie1010,

To lock the computer after a cetain amount of time
Right Click in an empty space on the desktop, select Screen
Saver, tick the On resume, display welcome screen and
set the time.

Good Luck.
