How do I limit the features of a Standard user account, without affecting the Admin account?

I'm not sure I understand your question, but I'm assuming you're referring to the "default user" account? You're trying to limit the feature of that account when setting up a machine, while trying to keep the Administrator account unaffected? If so, this might sound strange, but Microsoft's recommendation is that you setup a pc the way you want it, and then you copy the Administrator profile to the default user account. I used to do this when I administered a computer lab and it worked great. It gave the default (student) account the rights I wanted it have, while keeping it limited, and not affecting the administrator account at all.
