Question about Acer Aspire 5610-4648 Notebook
In Windows XP How many passwords can be set to secure a machine and how?
Well, the best way to setup security is through a BIOS password. This bypasses any operating sytem and doesn't allow any user interaction until the password is entered. Also, a user cannot edit anything in the BIOS without a master password.
Most BIOS systems can be entered by pressing delete during the initial startup of the machine.
As for windows XP, the only true security it has is the startup password. Which is setup through the users menu in control panel. You can, however, setup advanced security and disable many abilities of other users using the Administrator account on your operating system.
