  1. How to prevent account deletion?


    I am having an administrative user account with a password on a computer in the computer lab. And there is another admininstrative account for public use without a password which all other students use. Yesterday when I opened the computer I found my account deleted. It was wierd I thought someone would have done that. So I made it again and today I found it deleted again. I don't want to doubt someone unnecessarily. So Is there a way by which I can prevent an administrator from deleting my account? Something like it would need my account password to delete my account so that only I can do it or something like that?

    :)

    Remove account


    I suggest you backup your personalized files first before removing the account.
    To delete an account, follow these steps:
    1. Press WIN + X keys and click Command Prompt (Admin) from the menu.
    2. Type the following command and press Enter. Replace test with the name of your sister's account. Code:
      Code:
      net user test /del

    How to prevent account deletion?

    Deleting User Accounts

    If you can access the admin account through safe mode then all you have to do to remove the other account passwords is go into User Accounts in the control panel and either delete the accounts or, I'm not sure, remove the account passwords.
