on the user account where you set the access you want someone to have
you can create a "prevent forgotten password" disk
now my brother in law has one of these disks and we don't want him to use the computer
anymore
SO is there any way of stopping this short of giving him a slap?
i know he puts on keyloggers trying to get CC numbers
but caught him with the scanner from ca associates
which i think grinler put up a while ago unsure...

thanks

Change your Passwords.

Install:
Spywareblaster - A good program that prevents spyware from being installed on your computer in the first place. This program is always running in the background, protecting your computer. It prevents the installation of bad active X controls found in web pages.
SpywareGuard - A nice compliment to SpywareBlaster. This allows you the option to prevent downloads that contain bad active X controls.
aČ free - a complementary product to antivirus software which is specialized in protection against harmful software. Antivirus software often features an inadequate protection against Trojans, Dialers and Spyware. aČ fills this gap.
ewido security suite - offers protection against urgently growing threats like Trojans, Worms, Dialers, Hijackers, Spyware and Keyloggers.
Ad-Aware - A good program similar to SpyBot S & D.
Spybot S&D - Detects and removes spyware, of different types, from your computer.

These programs, updated and used regularly, will do a lot to keep your computer clean of spyware, trojans, keyloggers, browser hijackers, etc...

Download them, update them, and then run them.

When installing ewido security suite, under Additional Options uncheck:
Install background guard
Install scan via context menu

Important:
Please read this tutorial on Spybot S&D before using it. Spybot can do SERIOUS damage, if not used properly.

Why not change his password or better yet delete his account? The prevent forgotten password disk will only reset the password if it hasn't been changed on the computer. Delete his account, change everyones passwords and be done it. See if you can get a new brother in law, one that doesn't steal credit card info. ;) (just kidding)

One of the first steps is to disable his account. I would then change user names such as "Administrator" to something else. By default, Administrator is used so any hacker can attempt to guess the password by trying to login as user "Administrator". Change Administrator to a new user name that is ambiguous, i.e., not your pet name or a username someone can easily guess. Also change the password. Then slap him.
