RE: How to prevent others from using computer (Follow-Up #4)

a little extrapolation on the " hidden administrator" part of the last post, now that you have a password, at the log on screen, hold ctrl, alt, and del release, then hold them down again, and you will be presented with a differant type logon screen with your name in a "user" area, and a blank space in a "password" area, if you erace your user area, and type in "administrator" almost all computers will have this account as well, and it will have no password for default.
it is the MASTER account and it only shows up here it can erase all other users, and change their passwords.
so go there and logon with administrator and put a password on it as well.
