Can't run programs from others users only on Administrator.

I know this question was asked before but I do not recall the answer. I have a computer with three users including the administrator. The problem is only the administrator can run the programs. Is there a way to still have the other users setup with limited ablities but still be able to run programs?

What programs in particular?  I have not had problems with most programs but some require special attention to permissions on particular files/folders.

Power DVD is one I know for sure oh and the cd burning software. I remember reading something about copying the administrator's Documents and Settings folder to the other users. I not sire if I read it correctly.

You can copy the documents and settings folder for a user to another profile which will cause settings to be copied over to users profiles but will not fix the issue of access.  Many times these access issues can be fixed by simply setting permissions on the install directory of these apps.  such as in program files, PowerDVD folder.  Though I am not sure as i have not had to use these programs with non-admin users before.

How would you go about setting the permissions.

You would have to right click on the folder and click properties.  There is a security tab.  You can either add the user and change permission or add the everyone group or just assign permissions to the user group which will normally contain any local accounts on the PC.
