How to prevent Employee from Bypass / Bridge Administrator Password to Install unauthorized software & Torrenting?

So, apparently 2 of our employee manage to bypass our Admin password and install torrent software to Company's PC.

There are two local user:

1. Administrator with password - they supposedly don't know.  

2. User with password - they use this one.


Even though they already sign the User Agreement for company PC.

They confess that they ask 3rd party (outside of our organization) : ex employee and their kids to do it.

Either they know the Admin password or they find a way to bypass it.

From Google Search this what I found:

https://itoolab.com/windows-password/how-to-bypass-admin-password-windows-10/#:~:text=Method 1%3A Bypass Admin Password Windows 10 Using Lusrmgr&text=msc” in the Run bar,admin account without any software


How to prevent them next time from doing it again?

Should we just use M365 Business Account to log them?

There are things you can do, but anyone who controls the hardware can potentially still break through.  Giving someone work hardware for the specific purpose of 'breaking in' is always a sackable offense and likely a criminal one too.

Note: My advice is amateur help/beginner troubleshooting, someone else can probably troubleshoot way better than me.

A lot of corporations use Employee Monitoring Software to deal with such issues.

After all it's a corporate computer - not a personal one.
