I was told once that you can program your computer to stay "at the black screen" so that Windows won't even start -- that you can require a password before Windows will boot up.
We are going to buy a new computer in the next couple of weeks, and I would LOVE to do this to prevent our son from using and/or messing with our new computer. He has his own! (He's a teen with more computer knowledge than us.) Unfortunately, he sometimes screws up the computer, and that is why he was given one of his own at Christmas.
Can someone tell me how to do this, or where I can find instructions on how to do it?
Thanks so much.
