Windows 7: Trying to change to standard account type...

Trying to change to standard account type...

This was the first account I made on windows 7, my admin account, but then I decided to try to change this to a standard account by creating a new account and making that one the admin. I have programs and settings here that I didn't want to lose, so I did this. The problem with that is... this account can freely change itself from standard to admin without me having to log into the new admin account I made. So... I don't know if being able to change from standard to admin freely would be a security issue...sure sounds like one though. Is it possible to transfer all settings from one account to another?
