Account Restrictions via password

Hello all, I wasn't sure where to put this seeing as it is an odd question.

I was wondering if I can have my account on my Windows 7 pc accept two passwords, one that I know that has full administrative rights, and another that is not an administrator. I don't want 2 separate accounts, just different login parameters.

If anyone can help I would greatly appreciate it,
Thanks

Sorry there but there is only room for one password in the file that maintains the userid's and password.

so your out of luck with one userid and more than one password.
You will have to resort to creating a limited userid for the second use..

Damn, alright thanks, didn't know if there was a backdoor way of getting it to work or a program that would do it for me.
