Other than using the Windows acct password is there anything else worth installing to prevent an unwanted user logging on to Windows ?
You could put Ubuntu on it until the whole thing blows over... I highly doubt her husband even remotely has a clue about that OS.
Also, there are
things you can do to prevent unauthorized infiltration.. For starters, make sure the Administrator acccount has a password and change it once in a while. Also, set the account she uses to a plain user. That will prevent software from being installed on either account. Also, prevent elevation of user priveleges for windows update, that should close a few holes... Also, install a software firewall and use a strict per-application access policy.
