Windows 7: win 7 admin log in

win 7 admin log in

Hi my daughter has a acer aspire win 7 machine and me and my wife are very worried about what she is doing on her laptop sometimes and the people she talks to.

She has a password on her computer so we cant access it, what i want to try and do is access the admin account which is not activated at the min.

So is there any way to activate the admin account before you log into windows and then deactivate it so she would not know we have had a look on there.

thanks
