Excluding the system adminstrator account (the one named Administrator that
shows up in Safe Mode), you don't need to disable any administrative
accounts. You need at least one administrative account (with a name other
than Administrator) in the Manage Accounts page. Then one standard account
for each person who uses the computer (including yourself). Everyone should
use a standard account for day-to-day computing. Use the administrative
account only when absolutely necessary to perform advanced tasks that you
can't get to by elevating on-the-fly from a standard account.
If you don't care about that security, then you can just disable UAC and
work from an administrative account. Definitely not a "security best
practice" by anybody's definition of the phrase. But is is an option and
will be more like the old way of doing things.
