      CTRL+ALT+DELETE is not to lock your PC. In Windows (98->XP) CTRL+ALT+DELETE is to open the Task Manager, where you could kill or stop applications and/or processes.

      To lock your computer you have to define a passwords for each account or disable the other accounts (as an Administrator).

      Also you could use a password protected screen saver.

      Open User Accounts in Control Panel
      Click the Advanced Tab
      Check the Box “Require users to press CTRL+ALT+Delete”
      Click OK

      Alternatively you can type WINKEY+L to lock the computer.
