Have windows XP. Have created separate non admin account. When I try and install Itunes on this account I can't. How do I permit downloads on this limited account.

What happens when you try to install iTunes? Do you get any error messages?
The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who haven't got it.

That's the nature of limited user accounts. It's function is to keep it very bare-bones: surfing the net, checking email.
It is what is says it is: limits certain functions like installing programs and changing some settings.
