How To Secure Or Set Password Protection On Windows 7 Home Edition


If you are like me who sometimes enjoy privacy and wouldn’t want anyone going into your computer to access files or other stuffs at their wish then setting password protection for your windows could be the best option if you do not want to password just some folders alone. Even through it sounds easy, not everyone actually knows how to do this.

Securing or setting a password protection varies on the windows. The procedure to set a password for windows xp is quite different from the method to setting that for windows 7. As a matter of fact, based on my usuage of both microsoft windows, setting a password for windows xp seem to be more protecting than in windows 7 home edition.

How? If you set a password on microsoft windows xp and puts the system on sleep mode, whenever you wake the system up, it will ask you for your log in password but in the case of windows 7 Home Edition, the system does not ask for your password when waking it up from sleep mode instead, it logs you straight to what you were doing before you fixed the system on sleep hence, it’s always advisable to always shutdown the system if you need maximum privacy on your computer system running microsoft windows 7.
