There should always be that additional Administrator account, though I
believe you're referring to two account in addition to that one. If
that's the case, then you use the User Accounts dialog in the control
panel to give administrative privilege to your "permanent" user
account. Once that is done, and you have move the "temporary" user's
documents, music, pictures, favorites, etc out of the profile, login
as the new permanent admin user and you can delete the old one (also
in the User Accounts dialog).
