I have a bit of an ironic dillema: I've opened up my home computer to allow for me to use remote desktop clients to access it. In doing this, I noticed a bit of a danger where one could get administrator access to my computer and do some damage should they get my ip/username/password.
My solution: Change my user to "standard user" and create an administrator account that would not be open to the remote desktop.
Unfortunately Microsoft says that anyone who is a member of the Administrator Group has access to remote desktop.
My question is: does being an Administrator mean that you're in the "Administrator Group"? And is there any other way to keep my administrator account safe from my remote desktop client so that nobody can get to it?
Also, is there any type of logging system that would show if someone is repeatedly trying to log into my computer unsuccessfully?
Thanks in advance! You're the greatest.
