I'm running Sharepoint 2010 on a Windows 2008 R2 server.  I have two domain accounts that are being used in Sharepoint 2010.  Both are members of the Standard User domain group only.  On the server running Sharepoint 2010, one is an administrator (sp80Admin) (this one is used to install sharepoint) and the other is a standard user (sp80).  I've set all the services to log on using the sp80 log in.  That log in was given farm admin rights in SP2010.  Now I'm getting warnings saying that sp80 should not be used because it has highly privileged rights.  The services are:

SharePoint - 80 (Application Pool)
MSOLAP$POWERPIVOT(Windows Service)
SPSearch4(Windows Service)
Claims to Windows Token Service(Windows Service)
Web Analytics Data Processing Service(Windows Service)

Any help would be appreciated.
