have a look at this

for those wanting to have added security for your pc, you may want to use this program PREDATOR protects your PC with a USB flash drive | PREDATOR

basically, all you need is a flashdisk to secure your computer. i haven't tried this one though so i cannot give a feedback regarding this program. if anyone has tried this one, please give us a heads up whether or not this program is useful. the first question that comes to mind is that what if you lost the flashdisk or it suddenly died? you have to reformat the whole pc?

I have never tried this piece of software too but it's kinda useful. It's like using your USB as your personal "door key". If you want to lock your PC, then just remove the USB. Insert it again to unlock it.

If you have siblings there at home that mess with your computer whenever you're away, then this is the right software for you.

I had one person tell me recently that a flash drive on a key chain got wiped clean because of static or magnetic fields.
