Hey Steve,

I just used your SSH tutorial. Nice, thanks. One thing you might want to change is the problem with key refused when the key pair are created on Putty and uploaded to a Linux box. The keys have to be generated on the Linux box or the connection is rejected.

As a migrant from Mac to Windows (economics) I was operating (doing everything from) an admin account. Finally I realized this was not safe and created a standard account. But all my data was back in my admin. account. Thanks so much for the tip about creating a new admin account and then demoting the old one to standard. Worked like a charm! Thanks.

thanks for this found it via google however I don't know if I have disabled or not the administrator account?

I'm running windows 7 home premium and in Computer management I don't have Local Users and Groups only shared folders.
