the best and easiest is to install a bios password - then nobody can boot your system without the password
so don't forget or loose that password

2. Password protecting documents has to be done on a file by file basis
You may want to use the EFS (encrypting file system), don't lose your certificate or you will lose the ability to access the file.
You might want to use a 3rd party encryption tool i.e. Veracrypt, create a veracrypt container and then put your sensitive documents into this folder.
