how to disable admin accout to connect remotely but allow a standard (limited) accout entry into a windows 7 machine RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    Apologies, I could not find the right forum. Hope the moderator can place me somewhere.

    I would like to connnect to my computer at work remotely (windows 7) from home (vista). I know how to do it, what to configure etc.

    However, I noticed when configuring windows 7 (machine at work) that admin account is allowed by default and I have to enable standard account to do that. I see it as a security risk and would like to do the opposite: to forbidd the admin account (which I am using only to administrate my computer) but allow only standard (limited) account  (which I am using on a daily basis) to access the machine remotely.

    Is there a way to do that?

    With best regards


    p.s. Of course, my fear is that someone might try to get as the administrator in my computer.
