Admin account & user account

I got my new Dell with Windows 7 Ultimate and transfered my old xp stuff to the new one with Window Easy Transfer.
I then realized that it all was transfered to my Administration Account & not the standard user account I had set up.
So i went in and coverted the standard user to the administrator account & renamed them both.
I now have all my stuff in a standard user account and dont have to use the admin account everyday.

My question is.
I there any reason not to switch like this?
I only ask because in Control Panel / User Accounts for my standard user account ( which was the original the Admin.Account )
still has a sub-heading of administrator. I dont know how to remove it or if I can. I am woundering if there is some type of
preconfigured items that need to remain with the old adim.account or if I should just put it all back the way it was?

Thanks

    Hi dhofman,

    No worries! The set up you have now should work just fine. It is actually better to work from a standard account over an adminstrator account so you don't accidentally delete something vital that you don't want to delete. :)
