[#0005ff]You could block access at BIOS level by creating a password in the BIOS without which no-one gets as far as Windows. Make sure you write it down and keep it somewhere safe, though - forget it and you're locked out as well. Look for the key you need to enter Setup or BIOS when the first screen lights up when you start the machine - Delete, F2 or whatever then go to the Security tab.[/#000ff]

If you are concerned about data on your hard drive (if perhaps the machine were stolen, and a factory reset would clear the BIOS password), you can use a whole-disk encryption program like PointSec.
