Defense Against Boot Disks? by Jmuetz
I have several users that keep using a linux boot disk to reset the administrator password. Short of encrypting the entire disk with a program like Safeboot, is there anyway I can stop them? My thought is maybe moving the registry hive that stores the passwords? is that possible, or would the linux boot disk be able to see them where ever I move them? Any suggestions are appreciated

Hi, just installed W7 Ultimate and made a mistake, I guess. During setup procedure I created the account "Jose" and customized the OS with this account, as I'm doing this for 20 years now. After finishing I removed administrative rights from this account and went ahead to customize the administrators desktop. But when I type in "Administrator" on logon screen, Windows says "Administrator is...
