Is there any danger, other than the obvious (downloading stuff that contains viruses, etc) to running development software such as VS 2012 with Admin rights? It's launched within a standard user account, but I use the "Run As" command whenever I launch the program because lately it's been crashing, even on fresh installs, which makes me thing that it's related to a Windows update.

Anyway, assuming that I use precautions relating to downloading, does this pose any major threat to the system, even though I'm logged in as a standard account user?
