Possible issues reverting a Standard User to Administrator
I have Windows 7 Ultimate x64 with one account currently (the one made when installing Windows - bryo). I recently wanted to try switching to using a standard account for daily use, so I created a new Administrator account and switched 'bryo' to a standard account.
I ended up deciding to revert back to the original account setup, so I changed 'bryo' from a Standard account back to an Administrator account and then deleted the new Administrator account I had made.
After logging in with 'bryo' again as Administrator, however, a Dropbox installation window popped up (as if I was installing Dropbox for the first time). I closed this window without doing anything and Dropbox seems to be working fine so far (nothing seems to have changed in settings/etc), but I was wondering if there was anything else I should look out for that might result from switching from an Admin account to Standard and back to Admin.
Thanks for your help!
