Non Administrator to stop and start service.

I want to use the following script to stop and start a service on a remote machine.
Administrators can successfully run it but non-administrators cannot.
Is there a way to modify the script to allow non-administrators to run the script?

Set objWMIService = GetObject("winmgmts:{" & _
"impersonationLevel=impersonate}!\\remoteserver\root\cimv2")
Set colListOfServices = objWMIService.ExecQuery("Select * from Win32_Service")

' WMI and VBScript loop
For Each objService in colListOfServices
      If ucase(objService.name)="TARGETSERVICE" Then
            objService.StopService()
            WSCript.Sleep 15000
            objService.StartService()            
      End If
Next

Hey tonySchlein

if you want to stop/start one specific service, you could set it permissions to allow all users to do it.
use subinacl.exe from Microsoft, get it here:

here is an article how to do it:

I hope this will do.
