Is there a way to create an admin account in Microsoft Active Directory that can do everything EXCEPT make changes to the account that created it?  Is it possible to do this?  Sort of like "admin" vs. "super admin".  Of 'course, I would be "super admin" and my customer would be plain old "admin"....

If you don't trust the individual to not change your account password / details then don't give them access - Its as simple as that in my eyes.

As per McKnifes comment, there is no simple/supported way of doing this that I am aware of.  Its not worth the risk IMHO.
