    Require password for touch screen that runs 24/7

    I would like to put a touch screen out in an open lobby area with an program running on it, but i would like to lock the screen so if anyone touches the screen to make changes to the program they would have to enter a password, the screen will be on 24/7.

    the program will be updating data continually.

    Is this possible on windows 8.1?

    4. Click the touch screen driver
    5. Right-click, and select Disable from the list.
    6. Click Yes on the dialog box that asks if you are sure you want to disable the touch screen driver.

Require password
In Win 8 power options>advanced the "require a password on wake up" choice YES is greyed out, so it cannot be changed. How can this be set to NO? Note: This is not a USERPASSWORDS2 / Netplwiz issue, where one can check the box not to require a password. That box IS UNchecked. Thanks
