Administrative rights

Hi all,

How do I give ADMINISTRATIVE RIGHTS to the "PeerGuardian 2" ( application, while logged-on to "Windows 2000 Pro" as a RESTRICTED USER?

It defeats the purpose of surfing, downloading (P2P -Emule), and doin' things on the net if I have to be logged-in as administrator, instead of restricted...

Please help me out people.

Good Day,

    I don't know if this help you, but you can have a try :-)

    -Open Sheduled Task
    -Create a new task
    -Browse to the program that you want to run
    -Select that the task will run "When my computer starts"
    -Enter the administrator/password so that the task will run as admin account.

    Is it OK with you?

    You can try my RunAs VBS/VBE short-cuts, or even RunAs itself will work. Highlight the icon of the program, right-click it, select runas... or if on win2k, highlight,then hold shift while right-clicking and go to runas.
    Some short-cut's allow you to force runas to be used each time:
