Also, is there a way to prevent other from logging into my PC?  This is a work PC and we all log in using AD credential.  If I use Ctl+Alt+Del then I see others can choose to log in as other user.  How can I opt out that option?

A policy would have to be created in order to accomplish this.  You would have to be excluded from this policy but you can deny logon to certain computers.

Sorry to ask, why will you want not want other to log on to the PC if it is work PC? if you have staffs that work globally and move between location and someone want to use your PC while you are on holiday, how do you want this to happen?

Also, what is your company policy regarding this?

You need to enable auditing to track the logon.http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc787567(v=ws.10).aspx

As you need to only restrict user from login on single computer I will recommend to deploy the policy locally.On the client computer  in allow logon locally only add users or groups that you need to login and remove other but I will recommend not to remove domain admin:http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc756809(v=ws.10).aspx

Similarlly for allow logon to terminal add required user and group:http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc758613(v=ws.10).aspx

I'm a supervisor and wouldn't be appropriate for my team members to see some files on my PC.  Company policy in case of emergency, we will reset user password to obtain access.

Thanks everyone.
