Normally no 'non-Admin local user' is created.
I think only 1 user is created, and this user is an 'Admin'.

A normal Windows setup would have the user (USER, in MS-ese) with
non-admin permissions, and you'd have to open admin permissions.
I don't remember how, but if you're going to get into the nuts
and bolts, you'd better obtain a book. Once you figure out how
to get to an admin terminal, you can put an icon on the desktop to
get to it again when you need it.
If it's setup right from the install, I seem to remember you can
have it start with the option of user or admin, with same or different
passwords. I don't know if you can do that once it's installed, but one
of the books may tell you.

The main problem is, to find out what you can do, and how to do it, from
a command line, since most of the literature--particularly that from
MS--tries to do everything from a GUI.
For programs or modifications that require Admin perms in the desktop
environment, normally the system will tell you to enter the password,
so you need to get that straightened out.
I have several Win 7 books, but the most useful, generally, I think, is
a QUE publication called "Windows 7 in Depth." $49.99. Maybe it's on
sale, now that Win 8 is out?
I also have Wiley's publication, "Windows 7 Bible," $39.95.
And I think you can download a list of commands for the terminal

Frankly, Windows is a PITA, but there are some things you can't do


2nd is to make the machine part of the domain so all the normal desktop users can use the logins 
stored on the MS Exchange Server.  

The installer did just ask if the machine is part of a company network
but i'm not sure why because i have to hunt down all that set-up myself.

It's just put me on a new workgroup called "WORKGROUP" because they have
to shout.

hmm, if you have an Exchange server running, than you should know all 
these thing.........


Blessed are the peacemakers..for they shall be shot at from both sides.
