Is it possible to run a software install or file modification via an Active directory login script on a PC that doesn't have rights to perform those changes?  I.e., a "Run as..." option?

Runas is not secure since it still requires a password. MS recommends using a GP to assign or publish an application to. This will install the application as LOCAL SYSTEM and have elevated rights. All without the need to enter a password at the workstation.

While SCCM or LanDesk would be better this method will work as well.
