To open the User Accounts tool, open Control Panel from the Start menu, and then double click User Accounts.

To create a new user account, follow these steps:

1. Click "Create a new account" in the "Pick a task" list box.
2. Type the name that you want to use for the account, and then click Next.
3. Select the desired account type, and then click Create Account.

To make changes to an account, follow these steps:

1. Click "Change an account" in the "Pick a task" list box.
2. Click the account that you want to change.
3. Select the item that you would like to change:

- Click "Change the name" to change the name that appears on the Welcome screen for the account.

- Click "Change the picture" to change the picture that is used to represent the user account. You can use any image file on the computer for the user's picture.

- Click "Change the account type" to change the account type to increase or decrease the user's rights on the computer.

- Click "Create/change the password" to create or change the password for the user and create or change the password hint.
Spike's advice: Backup your data routinely.

That just tells me how to make an account and change one. But i want to know how to lockdown your computer so that you have to enter password and only I can get in (user can not be changed when in lock down). What i mean is how in XP: pro you can press ctrl +Alt + Delete and one of the options is Lock computer, i want to know if you can do this on Home.

Win XP Pro has significantly more security built in than home does.
