I sound fat: Strik3r: A couple of suggestions:

1. Create  NON-Admin account for Daily use
2. Use a password
3. Leave a password protected Admin account that you don't use (except in emergencies)
4. power- OFF the machine at night

You only really need to do step 4. Steps 1 - 3 are just a good idea - They preserve an "clean" Admin account which is essential to resolving any issue.

Yeah, this will protect you from the NSA... no, wait, it will protect you from people installing updates without your permission.  I got confused for a second.

(powering off the machine wont keep someone from powering it on.)

You're right...

I forgot to mention you need to bar your doors and windows after locking it in a safe.....
