Windows 7 and program permissions

Last Modified: 2013-11-05
We are about to roll a bunch of systems with windows 7 pro on them. I am cringing over the amount of calls a day I am going to get whenever a user tries to do something and they get a message that they need admin rights. Does anyone have any suggestions about how to reduce the amount of calls whenever a user opens a program, etc.. that requires a system change and prompts them for elevated rights? Many of these computers will be in a computer lab setting, with different students logging in.

Thank you!
