My son often goes on to the internet on my computer and can access outlook express and therefore my emails which isn't always appropriate! How can I set up my system so that only I can access outlook express or my emails.

Thank you

Without knowing what OS you are running its hard to give you an answer You have to put in a password for your operating system For example, I use windows 2000 professional and it prompts me for a user name and password.I CAN'T GET INTO MY COMPUTER WITHOUT KNOWING MY USER NAME AND PASSWORD Or you can lock your keyboard, by pressing control

ATL delete.
