No, not possible when they have the same level of privilege.

I am afraid you cannot be admin without being admin.
The question should be, if they should stay admins.

I have switched the user to a standard user rather than admin but then
i am just getting phone calls from them and i have had to change them
back to a admin

for example they cant chose what they have in their start menu
shortcuts etc. I am a little confued by this i thought each user
could set their own but 1 user seems to affect the other for exmaple
if i delete games shortcuts form the start> programs files it removes
it from all users.

Start menu items are of 2 kinds:
1]User's items, independent on other users setting,
all have full rights above their items.
2]All Users settings, shown in all start menus,
read access for all, write access for admins only.

All and User items can be copied, if needed,
as far as access rights allows.

Try to find all "Start Menu" and "Desktop folders.
Items under c:\userd\yourusername are your ( or user's ) items.
Items anywhere else are items for all users, that are automatically
added touser items.
In XP they were under All users folder, in Vista there is lot of
redirection. E.g. users\all users is redirected to \ProgramData
\Programdata\Desktop is redirected to \users\public\desktop
\Programdata\Start menu is redirected to \Programdata\Microsoft\windows
\start menu
