How To Stop My Son From Hacking Admin

How can I stop my son from hacking into my Admin settings on his computer? He is running Windows 7 Ultimate.
I'm using the Parental Controls to set up his time limits for his computer time because he has a Very Serious Computer Addiction and Cannot Control himself. He is getting behind in school and his grades have dropped way too low.
Somehow he figured out how to hack into the Parental Controls, lied and told me that he didn't.
I was able to get into the Admin Account, changed the password to 16 characters, and changed his computer time back to what I had before.
What are some of the options that I have (without taking his computer away)? I already tried taking his keyboard and mouse away, which doesn't always work. Sometimes he gets hold of his older brother's keyboard and mouse. Also, I'm not always around to take his keyboard and mouse away when necessary.
I don't have much money to spend right now, maybe $25 at the most.
