Thumbs down Windows security

It is just me or is the Windows security features rubbish, I can open the control panel and get into the appearances and themes window on school computers, even though I have a limited account and am not supposed to do this, I have also managed to hack into countless laptops by going though safe mode when re-starting and going into the administrator account, assuming it has no password
