A computer administrator account can change the type of account assigned to other accounts on the system. For example, a computer administrator account can be changed to a limited account or vice versa. Because any computer administrator account can change the account type for all other accounts, computer administrator accounts are not protected, meaning that one administrator can demote another administrator to a limited account.
