Developing with a least privilege account

I've taken the plunge, and removed my regular login account from the Administrators group. Not too many show stoppers so far - i did discover that my machine had a wrong group policy being applied, but that is fixed now. I've set up a Command Prompt shortcut that will run as my separate admin account.
