    Hello again, all:

    Don't know if this is the right section or even the right forum for this question. My apologies if it is not.

    I have a Windows 98se box and would like to find a good stable program to secure it from prying, little fingers when my wife or I aren't around.

    Have tried a couple, including one called "mousetrap" to no avail because of stability issues.

    Any ideas? Thanks...

    ;) 'Could be your PC has a "Power-on password" feature you weren't aware of...check for it in the BIOS setup (but don't forget it once you set it!)...

    Brilliant!

    Thank you, sir. That should keep the pesky little bugger off of both boxes.

    At least I'm learning something new every other day. :D

    BTW.....What's up with your website. Work in progress or is my Opera not displaying it properly?

    Always looking for new sources of information.
