You shouldn't be able to set all Administrator accounts to Standard. There should always be one left. Although I've only got one user account, the option to set it at Standard level is blocked out. On the Manage Accounts page, are you sure none of them say Administrator?

Apologies if I don't respond to your reply immediately. I don't check this site daily, but you're welcome to PM me as a reminder.

You can't use an account with restrictions to create an account with less restrictions. That would defeat the entire purpose of restrictions. You are restricted for a reason. If this is a business computer take care you don't lose your job over trying to do an end run on what you are allowed to do.
