Having problems with your Panasonic Toughbook W2 Notebook ?

I need to secure my PC against someone formatting it

\015 My father wants to take my computer to his office (which I bought so thats technically stealing) but my computer only has a session password. The problem is that my father doesn't care about my data, so if he can't bypass/crack/whatever my password (which he obviously can't lol), he will format my PC. The problem is I want to secure it from formatting, but I don't know how. Googled a bit but I don't know which terms to use to find something useful. When he finds he cannot do anything to bypass my security, he will surely return it to me. Thanks in advance.\015

Answers :

Try to place a password to the bios then set it to ask for the password on startup. That would block anyone from accessing your system aside from you. There are however some ways to still access your system and unless your dad knows how to then you will have system protection.
\015\012I also suggest talking to your dad about it. Anyway it is your computer and those are your data. What you could also offer is to create his own user account.
I know this is probably an easy thing to do but notfor me!! How do I password protect my internet satellite service. Lynksys connects my computers and I need very simple instructions...thanks
