    Hello everyone,

    I'm new to Vista, but want to create another user account so that I'm not using my Admin account. It seems that this is suggested by Microsoft as it's safer.

    I have all my programs installed and now I want to create a user account without admin rights that has all the settings, look and feel etc that I have set up with my admin account.

    Can I copy the admin account and then just turn off admin rights? or is there some other way of doing this?

    Thanks for the help and your time.

    All the best to you,

    Glen
