how to set a password on screen saver

well my brother decided to look at some porn on my computer, and he attempted to make it seem as if he didnt. on his attempt he managed to reset my homepage, erase my bookmarks, and clear my cookies. arg.

how do i set a password on screen saver? ive tried to do it by checking the box and stuff, but when does it let me enter a password? and if the password box does come up, what password do i enter?
 
It is a checkbox on the screensaver tab, set it and you will have to put in the account password to unlock the screen.


It comes up every time the screensaver comes on.

But your brother can just reset the computer if the screensaver has a password :()
The only way to have a screensaver password is to have an account password. . .so there's no problem.

You have to be an Admin to do it. . .at least I think you do, maybe not.

Control Panel-User Accounts-YourAccountName and then you just add in the password.

Go to Control Panel (it's in the Start menu). There should be an icon-type thing called User Accounts. You can set the password to your user account from there.
I set a password on this computer all the time when I don't want my brother screwing something up.
