Question Setting up an Admin. Account

My aunt has a computer that has 2 accounts which are both admins. How do you change one of the accounts to a limited so that you cannot change it back? (when you change the account to limited, you can still change it back to admin.) thnx.

I spend about 99% of the time worrying about viruses and computer threats and 1% of the time fixing them.

Anyone in the administrators group will ba able to change the user back to an admin. But the user that has become a limited user will not be able to change it back.
Change the world. Of one person. Today.

If your equation requires either a complex combination of variables to get the desired result OR you can't seem to get the result regardless of the ain't your variables, it's your constant.
