Submission + - Securing a PC when others have physical access?

An anonymous reader writes: I will be going to college next year and I am concerned about room-mates and other random people having physical access to my computer and viewing/copying my data or putting remote access trojans on it while I am away. I am running Windows XP for software development purposes (and lets be honest, games :-)) and I know that running Windows is a problem but at this point I don't think it can be avoided. I will of course have anti-virus and firewall software but what is the next step? Thank you for reading!
