I have been using one administrator account on Snow Leopard on my iMac. I have read that it is better to run a standard account for whatever reason especially with this new MacDefender scare. Can anyone explain to me why this is necessary? I know that it is probably more secure.

Also, what is the best way to copy all of my settings, iTunes library, photos, etc. to a new standard account?
