If your employees have access to your administrator user account on your computer, they can create their own administrator accounts. Administrator accounts have unlimited access to your computer, proprietary software, business documents and information. To secure your computers, delete the other administrator accounts on your Windows computer. Elect to keep the other account's files, or delete them, when you delete the account. You can recreate the administrator account later, if you need it.
Press "Win-X" to open the Power User menu and select "Control Panel" from the list of options.
Click "User Accounts and Family Safety" and then click "Remove User Accounts."
Click the second administrator account and then click "Delete the Account."
Click "Delete Files" if you want to delete all of the files associated with the second account. If you want to delete the account, but keep the files, click "Keep Files."
Click the "Delete Account" button and then click "Yes" if Windows warns you that the user is still logged in.
