Can a standard user on Windows 7 create unlimited user accts?

By jscgalens ·
My 12 yr old son has a new laptop with Windows 7. I set myself up as administrator and he has a standard acct. I set up the parental controls for his account for the days and hours he is allowed to be on his computer, however I started to notice that he was on at times that I did not set up. When I check his laptop, he had just created another random user account which of course had no restriction because I did not know about it. Am I missing something or is there a way I can prohibit him from being able to set up another user?

There is a tool called K9 web protection. It is free, and while it wouldn't answer the issue of multiple accounts, it will monitor activity and it has one of the best category screens I have used. If an inappropriate page is clicked or typed(mistyped remember you can either post a message or the page just never comes up.
