Cons of always logging on as Administrator
I have two guidelines for this topic.
1. You should instantly rename your administrator account so a hacker would be less likely to guess it...knowing the account name is half of hacking.
2. You should create a SECOND user account with administrative rights. This is for installing apps, changing programs or whatever. The reason behind this is being it is recreate-able if you mess up it's profile, simply delete the account, and recreate it. That is how I get around having the Admin account profile automatically regenerated.
As a guideline, try to stay away from using built in system accounts for log on purposes in the first place.
There are a number of programs on the market that require you to be logged as the Administrator before they will install. These programs check the name of the currently logged in user and if it is not "Administrator" then the setup program will fail.
