Multiple administrative accounts on one server. How do I block deletion

A long story, but I have inherited two servers at a remote hosting site.  

We bought out another company and inherited these servers as part of the process.  The existing owner has control of the administrator account on these servers.  They've set up a new local account on the server in my name, with administrator permissions.  I am able to RDP to the server and access the machine properly.

Due to some trust issues, management has requested that I have my account flagged so that the administrator account cannot delete it or force a password change on me.  This will ensure I always have access to the remote servers and cannot be locked out, even if the new partners IT people try to do so.

Is this possible?  I can't think of a way around this as I don't have control of the actual administrator account.

Suggestions would be appreciated.

And a registry tweak is also adjustable by the upper Admin so it only redirects the problem to another place (the registry).
I think you and you're new collegue have to drink a few beer and figure something out about sharing the Administrator account.

Good luck
It looks like you don't have a computer problem here but a people problem
As you're boss bought out the other company, he also bought the administrator password.
I do understand the Administrator doenst want to give out his password because it is/was his domain.
If you're the new Company Domain Admin then it's simple and you should just have those passwords.

But it sounds like this has to be forced by someone with more authority in you're company .
Configuring people is much harder then Active directories !!!

It really is a people issue.  I was just hoping there might be some way to block the ability to change password or delete a user account by making some sort of registry tweak.
