He must have logged is as Administrator with no password.

To prevent this give the Administrator Account a password.

How do you do that? like on my sytem i am admin but only shows my account in users although it does say im admin, in safe mode i get 2 logons to choose from my name and admin.Do i need to do it from safe mode? for the admin account.

And does it still ask for the password in safe mode log on?
