    Blocking new account creations

    Hi i am using Vista Ultimate x64 and i am just posting to see if it is possible to block new account being made on vista. As i have a few friends who are able to get past my password and create new account just to annoy me.

    If there is any way to block new accounts being made in vista it would be very helpful.

    That would be by keeping your administrator account password for yourself.
    If your friends can add accounts to your system, they have access to an
    admin account. Change the password to a strong one, not something
    easy-to-guess, and do not write it down. Use password protected Standard
    User accounts only for others, disable the Guest account, and keep UAC
    enabled.
