Stop letting your brother use your administrative account. Log out or set up the screensaver to lock the computer when you leave it. Also set a password to your account.

Bu that has nothing to do with what the OP asked. That registry key actually disables UAC, but does nothing about creation of accounts.

Logicearth is right. Just strip off his regular account from administrative permissions and he'll be unable to create accounts. Both Win 7 and XP allow that.
