What's a better way to see what extra admin accounts are being used for than just disabling them and seeing what starts giving errors?

One thing you could do is run services.msc, sort by "Log On As" column and check for these accounts. Unfortunately, some applications handle authentication from within the app, so you have to dig into the app to see if they are used.
