Locking Passwords?

Hi All,

I'm using XP and set my password to log on, if I wanted to get rid
of it, all I have to do is log on using the any user log in and go to control panel and change my user/pass.

How do I make sure no one can do this?
Thanks

if just any user has the ability to change other accts PW's on your comp it means you have them set up as computer admins by default..thats one thing that I don't like about XP it sets all users to admin by default..just goto user accts and change them to a limited user or such or you can use secpol.msc to modify user abilities.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
