Here is my dilemma. I am currently booting right into admininistrator account, without password. which I know is vulnerable to attacks. Now I have 2 choices. 1 password protect administrator account, or 2, create limited use account with / without password. Also fyi, I have turned off UAC and most prompts, will these settings carry over to limited account.

Your best move is to password protect the admin account. Even if it's a stupid simple password... like password it's better than absolutely nothing.
