Windows 7: Unlock pc

Unlock pc

In Windows XP if a user locked their pc I could simply unlock it using my user name and password because I am the network administrator. This does not seem to work in Windows 7. Is there some setting to return to the way it used to be in XP?

unfortunately; i do not believe there is a way to do such a thing because windows 7 is pretty much a updated version of windows vista whereas xp was completely different in terms of the architecture of the operating system as vista and 7 I would say are more secure than xp by a long shot.
