Nothing to do with Oracle and a repost of mine elsewhere but you folks are pretty knowledgeable so its worth asking here.

At work so scant on details as this is my home rig.

I'm currently running as an admin on my windows 7 rig (Don't need a lecture on the bad habit thanks ) and I'm looking at changing that over to a user since I understand win 7 users are less crippled that previous incarnations.

My questions are thus:

Is that true? Can a "user" in win7 actually do anything day-to-day or will I be stuck putting an admin code in anytime I want to launch a game or anything?

Is it possible to clone the entire admin profile, then switch it to a normal user? I've got a load of stuff installed under the admin account, I really dont want the hassle of reinstalling everything, manually moving game saves etc. Would this break things reliant on admin privs?


If this is unclear let me know and I'll try to make myself clearer.
