Give him a limited account when he's not looking... hehe. If everyone has an administrator account I don't think there's anyway you can stop any one of the users from entering control panel and messing with the other accounts. You can do some stuff by clicking Start, run, and type gpedit.msc and implement some polcies that will do various things like remove the control panel or the run command, but I don't think that there's anything in there that will help you with your situation except making less admin accounts. It's not a good idea to have more than one anyways.

Even though every one does it, it's a very bad idea to run your system as administrator -- unless needed. You should have limited accounts for everyone, and one administrator account to install software etc.
