As I mentioned in my reply to Tom Lake, the Administrator account isStan Brown said:Are you saying the Administrator account is automatically enabled in
Safe Mode? Yikes -- that would be a huge security hole, since
who gets hold of your computer could simply boot into Safe Mode and
have access to everything.
only enabled automatically in Safe Mode if there are no other accounts
with administrator privileges left on the system. So in Windows 7 (or
Vista, since it works the same way) you can't just boot into Safe Mode
and gain access to any system that way. Although, if you have
physical access to the system and are able to reboot it, you "own" the
system anyway. Booting to a CD or USB drive and accessing files on
the system, or even removing the password on a given account, is
trivial at that point.
