    My son likes to use the net user command during bootup. I locked his butt down with AD GPO (WIN2K8) but haven't figured out how to prevent or deny the net user command. He is able to change password and activated the Admin account.
    You need to password protect bios so your son cannot boot from an external device, making sure boot order is set so external drives are not top of list.

    I expect he is using the old trick of fooling OS into opening a command prompt by booting from an installation drive, and using sticky keys trick.

    You're welcome. Are you attempting to lock him out totally or harness his account?
