I just put a password on my bios to keep someone off my computer.

Just making sure, is there any possible way to get around it, or is my computer about as protected as can be?

well for someone that is not very computer literate at all, it should provide enough of a barrier to deter them. if you want to know how to get past it, it is actually rather simple. there are two ways. the first being that almost all motherboards have one jumper that can be switched so it clears the CMOS, as well as any BIOS passwords. the other is to unplug the computer, and take out the motherboard battery for a couple minutes, and that will clear the CMOS as well.
