Xp Admin Question

Is there anyway to password protect my admin account so another admin doesn't change my account?

No....what you could do is create another account that the 2nd admin doesn't know about. Give that account admin rights. Use it only when someone messes with your 1st account.

Yeah, cause the other admin will not think to look at the well undocumented Administrator's group that your secret 2nd admin account is in.
