if he sets a bios password too, i'm sure his dad will have no problem flashing the bios to clear the password.

Hows this for an idea? Get yourself a removable HDD bay, install it and then everytime you leave the house, you can take the HDD with you or hide it. Lets see ya dad read that! Problem solved

get a case with a locking door over the power button. Tell your parents that if they try to get into your computer, you will press criminal charges against them.

I would say that the HDD bay was better, not all pcs can boot from a removable drive, but with the removable HDD bay it will be fine, and its cheaper than paying for another HDD.

Yeah thats fair enough, but if you get a HDD caddy and fit it, then install your internal HDD in there, you can take the drive with you and he cant access it coz you will have it.

Have you got an administrator password setup on the pc? If not then its easy to bypass in safe mode, so set one up in user accounts, and password protect it, if you havent done so already.
