    I want to make a kind of protection for my computer that nobody, and I mean NOBODY, can break.
    Windows password is bullshit and can be removed in 5 minutes.

    The reason I want to do this: If my laptop ever gets stolen, I dont want anyone to be able to access the data.
    Does anyone know how I can accomplish what I am trying to do?

    You can do full disk encryption but there is a slight performance penalty. Keep in mind it may not stop the authorities from reading your disk however.

    What is the performance penalty? you mean computer's speed will go down?
    actually, on the truecrypt website it says even the fbi could not crack it after a year of trying.
