hi i downlod stuff from internet and usually i leave my p.c on while it is dwnloding.i shut down my monitor.it takes hours to dwnlod things as i have a slow connection.
now my problem is that when i leave my p.c for downloding my roommates start chatting/orkutting and other useless stuff :evil::evil::evil:and it sucks all the bandwith which could help in downloding faster:mad::mad::mad:.
i want to know abt softwares which can help me to lock my p.c while i am away;).some kind of password protection thing like the screen saver.
but i do not want it to affect my downloding in any way.

Asking for passwd while returning 2 windows from a screensaver would also serve the purpose!

arey yaar ... jab ghee seedhi ungli se nikalta hai..to ungli tedhi karne ki kya zarurat hai. No hi-fi software required to stop ur room mates... i guess u r the administrator... make one password (if u dont have one) ... whenever u leave... press WIN+L.... simple and fast

alright now i have decided to make a guest a/c for my roommates how do i put restrictions on it like-:
1. they can't install sftwrs
2. they cannot access certain folders
3. i can track what they did on the p.c like which websites they viewed.
and other such stuff.

1 & 2, use gpedit.msc, make a limited user account in Windows XP, u will be the admin & then use gpedit.msc to provide restrictions

3 , use event viewer in Windows, it can tell u anything which happened in the computer

Just type gpedit.msc in RUn dialog box and it'll open a windows :)

Now go thru all available options and u'll get many interesting things ;)

easier way, password protect all accounts
and schedule the downloads in dload manager schedule the dload manager u wanna run in scheduled tasks under ur username and password

download happens without logging in and ur frnds cant use the system

i changed a lot of things in the gpedit but it is affecting both my a/c(i.e adminstrator) and the limited user a/c i created.
i only want to put the restrictions in the new limited user a/c that i created.
here is a screenshot my user accounts



also when i logged in the other user and tried to use gpedit it gave the following error
