Hello everyone!

While I have used these forums for all sorts of information, this is my first post.... and it is a question.

My cousin is having problems with her son getting around the different parental controls that she has set up. He is even getting around a fingerprint reader. She has decided she's tired of his games and wants the computer to be a single account with one access password. She is using Vista Home. Myself, I am still using XP, so Vista does not come naturally to me.

My question is this:

Would deleting all the current accounts and activating the hidden "A"dministrator account and passwording it make it secure? So that even "safe mode" would only have the one possible account and require a password as well?

And any ideas anyone has about this I am willing to entertain. I want to lock this baby down!
