Changing user type to Standard User invalide size
I installed Windows 7 and ended up with a default user (AxeL) with Administrative privileges.
Now I enabled the default Administrator account and lowered the privileges of my user AxeL (see Accounts.png).
If I open the User Profiles Pane in Control Panel -> System -> Advanced System Settings the size of the user account is unknown (see Profiles.png).
If I switch back the user Axel to Administrators everything works and I can see the right size in the User Profiles Pane.
Does anyone have a clue on this?
I've tried also Vista and 8 and they all seems affected.

Elevate Axel to Admin account, hide the Built In Admin account: Built-in Administrator Account - Enable or Disable - Windows 7 Forums
This is the best way to set it up, the reason a new install is issued Admin account. In five years since Win7 beta I've never seen a reason why not, except for one or two of the most incompetent users imaginable. But who is going to be their Admin for them? Having a separate account just makes your right hand ask your left hand if it can act.
