One of the easiest ways to do it is to find an encryption program and place it on the main executible (.exe).  That is how I do it, and noone gets in without me letting them ; - ).  Search for "encryption" at http://www.hotfiles.com OR http://www.download.com and you should find something that suits your needs.

If you needed multiple users, you can set your PC so that you have to login - that creates a separate profile for everything, and will give all users access to OE but not to a personal account.

(since I can't find an "edit" button anywhere)

When I said ". . . access to OE but not to a personal account." I meant to say ". . . access to OE but not to others personal accounts."

Sorry for the mix-up, if there was any.
