I think FOR HANDLING VIRUSES, YOU SHOULD PREFER ANTI-VIRUS or INTERNET SECURITY. KASPERSKY or AVIRA is a good option. Isn't it NEO_VI ?
Rest I think NEO_VI may be correct to somewhat but I always think that Now a days Microsoft is trying to copy of Linux OS's security policy coz Latest Linux DISTROs don't allow its users to log in as ROOT(same as ADMIN in Windows) because of security (system and internet both). Same thing they have tried to implement in VISTA.
But if you have observed for a normal user, while installations, very few give passwords for ADMINISTRATOR login, in the end of the installation, WINDOWS another USER ID and ask you every time to log in using that password only. If you set up a password for your account only, still ADMINISTRATOR account is password-less. Sometimes it may be risky.
so in that case you can go for DISABLING ADMINISTRATOR ACCOUNT by using above mentioned command in WINDOWS XP and VISTA too.
