Do you mean that you used the "control userpasswords" trick and you switched yourself to administrator? Did you see a difference while you were an admin ? In that case it's still worth it.
No, nothig changes, actually, I dont even become administrator, I changed my account type to admin in the selection and pressed ok, nothing happened, I was still standard. 1st I thought it was just a display problem or something, restarted the PC to make it permanent... but nothing.
