Answered - Limited account question So on the laptop [(some terrible Gateway I know...) oh right and running Vista x86] that we currently have at my house it's set up with me having an admin account and my sister with a limited account. But I was going to get rid of my account seeing as I'm not planning on being anywhere near it anymore. Now I haven't done this before not with leaving nothing but a limited account running. I keep hearing from everywhere that it's a good idea to be a limited user rather than an admin for security reasons and whatnot. I was thinking of enabling the hidden admin account and just putting a password for that whenever she needed to do anything. But from what I've read everyone keeps saying that that's a terrible idea and to never use that account. So I guess before I dive in and mess anything up (assuming Windows would even allow me to do so) I have a few questions that I was hoping someone could clear up for me: -Can I delete my admin account and leave just a limited account ? ---If I do that how would she be able to install whatever she needed to when prompted ? -To activate the admin account or not ? -Just make her account an admin ? Something else that is staring right at me and I'm just not realizing ? Thanks for taking your time reading this and I hope someone can shed some light on this for me. And is it me or did I just repeat everything twice ? Sorry I'm not used to asking for help so I'm all paranoid there is something I should've mentioned before hitting submit. I'm sure I did though so ask away and I'll try add that in here.
