I would like to Password protect the computer whilst I am away from home. I do not use a password at the moment. I am running Windows 98SE on “C”, drive which starts by default, and XP on “E” drive. I do not want to continue with a password when I return if this is possible.

When your computer is booting up you should see a note saying something along the lines of "Press xxx to enter setup". xxx will be the key you need to press. On most computers it is delete. This will take you to the BIOS screen. In here you can navigate using the arrow keys. You should be able to find an option in here to put the password on your computer. Sorry I can't be more specific, but different BIOS screen have different layouts.

Any pasword including bios password can be defeated very simply.

If you are really conerned take the hard drives out out the PC. The use of mobile racks make this simple.
