Windows 7: Windows 7 Security

Windows 7 Security

Hi all,

I am looking to add extra security to my lock screen or after my lock screen.

Is there anyway to add a secondary password to the Windows 7 Lock screen.

or anyway to put a lock on after you login after the lockscreen or lock all the files or something with a separate password?

That seems overly excessive....why? Just use a strong password for your user account.

you lock the screen using winflag+L for example. It asks for your account password to unlock. Tha's enough security. Even if it's possible to require an extra password there.... untrusted user can hard power off computer and put it on again...and logon with one password.

So what's the problem?
