Windows 7: How to password protect laptop?

How to password protect laptop?

When i open my laptop, i have no password at all. However i know many people do have password for their laptop for startup. First off even if they do, isn't it easy to bypass the password thing? Is there a program where it makes it hard for someone to turn on your laptop without knowing the password?

I also have a lot of documents in my laptop that are pretty important. Of course each one is accessible by just clicking on it. Does anyone have advice on how to password protect certain documents/videos/pictures etc? I of course don't need to password protect every single document/video/picture. Though i wouldn't mind to know how to do this.
