    Just wondering, and no i'm not a crim...

    I haven't yet tested the password protection in PG...but does it prevent the execution of malware that may be executed from the A: Drive or CD-ROM?

    Was wondering about people who get their PC's Stolen, or confiscated, wondered if putting a password lock will prevent anyone modifying/adding new programs that may be RATs or Keyloggers.....

    Basically...... Does it really realllllly secure the PC from malicious intent by the driver of the keyboardo_O?

    If that is the case....... perhaps a feature:

    'Auto password lock PG after 30 min of inactive use'

    Any thoughts on this?

    In a way, yes it does secure the PC against new programs run from ANY location..

    BUT the PC could be formatted, or PG could be removed from Safe Mode. Physical access is pretty much always going to mean a full compromise, PG or no PG
