    In NT 4.0 at college, I remember being able to lock my screen by pressing Ctrl+Alt+Del, so that my comp could only be accessed if the correct password is entered, so I could leave my comp running while on a bathroom break etc without any worries.

    I've recently upgraded to WinXP from WinME, and it doesn't seem to offer this feature through the path I took before. I assume the feature is still in this version, given it's essentially NT 5/6, so would any of you be able to clue me in as to how to do this?

    Just wanted to correct, you dont need PowerToys for any of this. A new installation will be able to out of the box.
