    You installed CentOS, so by default you are the administrator for the computer you are using.
    Have you given someone else administration rights on your system?
    can others login locally on the PC?
    or are you worried about someone accessing your PC by guessing a use name and password?

    Dear Jonathan,

    I installed my Linux box and the administrator knows my root password. I have two accounts in my PC. time to time administrator is also login to the system.

    Thanks

    If you have something to hide, always assume the worse and you'll have nothing to fear.
    I agree the best way is to ask

    either you trust the admin or access has been imposed on you ... if it's been imposed then all you can do is keep it in mind when using the system
