Good thing you already fixed it. My suggestion was Linux. Need a password to do ANYTHING with linux

Put a password on the bios boot, passwording the user would just annoy me for about 90 seconds till I booted with a bartPE or Hawk cd. Lock the cover close too with a small pad lock.

Yeah, locking the bios boot is the easiest way really, and fail safe.

Its not entirely failsafe, but to bypass it you need to know the motherboard well enough to find the clear CMOS jumper, and not very many people will be willing to crack the case and look for it just to pull a prank.

Maybe you should stop hanging with gay porn users.
