    Unlike most user Iam wanting to set up my computer to prompt me for a login
    when I click on IE. Currently when I am logged in as me (administrator) and
    I click on IE it automatically comes up. I want to prevent other users from
    access the internet when I am logged in by prompting for a login to access
    IE. I have gone to Internet options,/Security/ then Custom Level and scroll
    down to User Authentication/Logon and have checked "Prompt for user name and
    password" but it still allows automatic login when I click on IE. Can
    somehlp me have IE prompt for a login?

    Thanks, Will

    Password Protect your User Account and every other one.

    Why are you allowing other users to run applications under your account? Why
    not give them their own user account?

    The option you've ticked is just for enabling/disabling the automatic login
    to a website that use Integrated Authentication, which for public websites
    will have no effect.

    Ctrl-Alt-Delete and selecting "Lock Computer" will keep others from
    accessing the internet through your account. :)

    Works on XP, 2000, and NT4 too - I do it all the time at work and at home.
    Or press WinKey + L, much quicker ;)
