Administrator or not?

Is it correct to say that it is unwise to work on-line using an administrator account?

Create a secondary "standard" user account for daily use, only logging in as the admin account when absolutely necessary.

If you run with UAC on the system will prompt you for your admin user password when this is needed so you will not need to log in as the admin account so often
