You are talking completely different issues. Allowing anyone walking 
past a machine to sit down and do whatever they want (which is stupid) 
is not in the least the same as having administrative access and 
auditing by IT (which is smart).

If you don't have full administrative access to the machine 
*independent* of people's day-to-day login accounts you are doing it 
wrong and need to hire a competent IT admin - because your current one 
doesn't know what heck they are doing.
