    Question Computer security

    I was wondering the most secure way to lock a computer while having background processes and networking still available. Just sick of burning DVDs and siblings coming in and cancelling.
    I have used a PC lock before but it would glitch and allow it to become accessible.

    So anyone know of any secure software that meet those two requirements?

    Change the password on the computer and exclude offenders for week for first offenses, and keep doubling up until the behaviour changes. It worked for me!
