Hazoss is on a distinguished road

A security concern.
Got an iMac 3 weeks ago and am in discovery mode. I need to take it back to iShop to sort out a problem (Mac wont update) and while there they can also install new OS Lion.
On purchase the iShop helped move all Window Files and Outlook to iMac - all ok.
How would I go about giving the technician access to iMac to perform the above tasks without having access to items like iTunes/MacMail/DocumentFolders etc.
I understand that to change OS to Lion he needs access -
If the above can be done while I wait - I may not be so concerned - however, if I have to leave the Mac overnight then I would like to have the areas of concern well protected.
At work I simply use password on start up.
Can you suggest or recommend an easy to use and effective solution?
Much appreciated, TIA
