Is it possible to do either of these things?

1) Enter a password which one would need to use in order to get access to the Computer at all, such as this: First, the User turns on the PC, and, then, must enter the password to "open" the Computer before ANY  of its features  can be reached - not just the Internet related services. 

2) Regardless of the answer to that question, is it possible to use such a password to get any access  JUST to the Internet server itself.

I know that these requests are bizzare.  The reasons for them go like this:  The above Verizon account is the principal Internet account for which this Compiter is used.  Much of what the Verizon account deals with is very confidential.  But there is a second, minor server on this Computer - AOL - and I am trying to protect that confidentiality because there are several people who usually employ AOL and/or simply "play with" non-Internet features of the Computer.

Thank you,
