    That news came out with the release of Vista years ago of course. It's perhaps worth mentioning tho, as it was not emphasised on the video, that as soon as the need for the hidden account has been dealt with then it should be disabled as its activation does represent a security weakness.

    Very true ... Use the Build-in admin just for troubleshooting purpose. Then turn it off.
