From what I understand ( could be wrong) but if you're using xp or vista there is a hidden admin account (google it to find out how to access it) and it either has no password or defaults to admin. I think you can access it through safe mode too. run anti-vir make sure there's no keylogger remove or password protect his sign on and the hidden admin plus a new one for your's.Also, I'm sure you can find a good tutorial on this site about how to create a truly strong password(i.e. salting)?but the sad news is there are programs out there that can crack about any password. If he's has such a program good luck. You might also want to password protect your netbios as well and make sure the boot order on your machine is not set improperly. Keep in mind I'm no expert but I've seen some of these in action and they're pretty amazing. Salting your passwords should help against a dictionary attack. The best advice I can give you is to read every tutorial on security you can find here. These people know there stuff and can help you more than me. Good luck Does your PC have a Key?
