While trying to run iisreset from CMD.exe on a Windows 7 64 bit, I got to know the difference of run as admin or not.

My question: As the local admin - is the difference on the CMD is the ONLY difference? or is it possible that other services/tools are behaving differently?

If there IS a difference, anything else I can do to cancel that?

I'm assuming you're talking about the UAC Elevation, so yes - UAC affects basically all programs, but not all programs requires Elevation. Anyhow, If you'd like to disable this feature then there are several options here.
