    Generally An operating system can be accessed by Physical access,time,individual skill or any Tool. It is almost impossible to completely protect your system from hackers but you can make their work much harder than ever by following below given steps:
    1. Try to set a password in the Bios of your computer so that it can ask for the password before booting the OS. Also set the supervisor password in your BIOS so that no one can enter in bios settings.
    2. Change the Boot order from Bios and make your hard disk as the first one so that hacker can't use any external device for booting purpose.
    3. Password is always important so try to set stronger password. It must have a mixture of Alphabets,numbers and special characters. If you are using windows xp then make sure that your inbuilt administrator account has some password because by default it doesn't contain password.
    4. Before leaving your computer,press "Windows key+L" to logoff your computer. If your computer is used by different persons then set appropriate permission for the same.

    Password in multiple layer is the primary protection for the Windows based computer.
    use BIOS password as first level password in starting the computer.
    use Windows password to access the desktop,
    can use file/folder level password in order to complicate hacking.

    Install good antivirus/anti spyware/malwarebyte/worm and trojan killers as some f them are so spooky that they copy keyboard key depression, and hackers can track those keys , vital to break password.

    Dont browse to unknown sites, dont espond or read spam, keep system clean and protected.
