MS M/E Password Login

By So Mtn Coll Acad Technolo ·
How can I configure MS M/E to prompt for password to login similar to Win2k when a user profile is set up? Can I set up an ?Administrator? login, as well?

I have faculty purchasing new computers with MS M/E. They are using these primarily at home, and prefer not to upgrade to Win2k. A clean install/dual boot is not an option.

I agree with soulrider?s answer, but now I have a comment: You know you will not be getting any security with a non-networked ME operating system. You users may simply hit cancel at the login prompt and have access to the local computer. They may not get a particular profile but they have control of the computer nonetheless. So a password only gives a profile not access rights in ME.

You could try a power on password. Since the user is at home, I assume you are not really worried about several profiles on one PC. A power on password would force an individual to logon to the machine itself.

If this question was answered, what was the result? Did one of the 3 answers give you what you need or did you get it from another source. If one of the 3 answers gave you what you need, they need to be rewarded for it.
