    For my laptop, I'm looking for a reliable PC lockout/security program that can do all the following:

    -Locks PC with password and asks for it upon reboot, even in safe mode
    -Can't be bypassed (such as being deleted, Ctrl-Alt-Del, etc.)
    -Locks automatically after a set PC idle time or timer
    -Quickly lock with a mouse-click

    I prefer freeware of course, but with those features, I expect to pay.
    Any recommendations?

    Thanks!

    Hi Bubba,

    It's Win98 SE.

    The Win9X OS's are very limited in the absolute password protection that can be provided compared to a NT based OS. If your laptop provides a bios password I would suggest you definetly consider that for starters.

    Thanks!
    I'll look into that.
    I may soon upgrade to XP, would that help?
