In Vista even the admin accounts work as non-admin accounts. The primary difference is that you can OK elevation requests without having to enter credentials (user name and password) in order to elevate things to an administrative process.
The only other option is to turn off User Account Control (UAC) for your profile. This'll leave you more vulnerable, but with less hassles - your choice. FWIW - I've stubbornly stuck to UAC for the last 18 months with Vista and have finally turned it off on my system - we'll see if I get infected. On the other hand, my wife is using Vista and has no problems with UAC (because she rarely does anything that needs Administrative permissions).
