Windows 7: Working with two profiles on one PC

Working with two profiles on one PC

I have two profiles. A normal user profile and an Admin profile. I sign onto one PC. Every couple of minutes I must switch between the profiles. Is there not another way to link to that profile via software? Any other way that I can work on both profiles?

For what exact purpose you need to switch to the other account ?.If this is to run a restricted program, you can run the program in question as another user without switching profiles.

This here is the one of the main points of UAC, do you have it on?

It is a great way to run as standard user and then elevate yourself with uav to admin when doing a admin action.
