Hi Randy,

You recommend creating and having two accounts for IT Administrators, one for general use, and the other for admin tasks.

In Windows 7, logged on as a Domain Admin (i know this is not recommended)  for many admin tasks i am still required to run them as an administrator (even though i already am logged in with admin priveledges).

My question is, is this Microsoft's answer and solution to do away with creating two accounts, and is this sufficient enough? or do you still recommend having an additional higher preiveledged account?

I think for many organizations User Account Control in Win7 can eliminate the need for dual accounts for admins.
