hi
i have win 7 home premium 64bit
i try to use my pc in an account without admin rights wherever possible, but, having a complicated password for my admin account, i'm wondering how is it possible to automate the running of applications that require administrator rights?
pure laziness i guess, but in the near future it will allow my kids to run certain apps without needing an admin account
many thanks

There's no way to automate it that I'm aware of (which definitely does not mean there is no way), but are you able to launch the programs by right-clicking and selecting "Run as Administrator?"

There is no way to do what you are talking about. it defeats the purpose of UAC to automatically elevate and authenticate anything that needs administrative approval.
starting with windows vista Microsoft has disabled the bult-in administrator account so that nothing can get into your computer or move around with full administrative privileges.
