If he (B1kesrule) thinks you can over right Win security by simply making a user account the same name then it does not work!

There is always a way to get past Windows security ... i mean, ITS MICROSOFT !
Like if you put a password on accounts, just boot in safe mode go into administrator account and then remove it, no problem
They say that they have been improving the security but still vulnerable, which is a sure sign that it is from Microsoft

Technoman, I'm still waiting for a reply, on the open forum, or by PM, I'm not particular.

I have been thinking of locking this thread for some time now, now it's done, it was becoming very disjointed

That trick only works with XP home, and doesn't work with any other version of windows at all.

It also relies on the fact that the user hasn't changed the admin password before you try it... it doesn't work on XP pro or any other version of windows because it asks you to set an admin password during the setup.
