The computers in my uni automotically locks when it is inactive for 10 minutes, so other people can not alter your stuffs unless if they know your password. I want to get a similar program for free for my laptop. Where can I get one?

turn screen saver on and tickm - go back to login screen. When the screensaver goes and you move the mouse it will go back to the log in screen.

ok it worked, except for I managed to log in by simply clicking "ok" instead of typing in the password. How do I fix that?

go to control panel, user accounts, and set one.
if you dont want to wait for the screensaver to kick in just press the windows key + L to lock it
