One way is to login to each system as an admin to allow the install to complete.

Another way is to first to find out if it is the install that requires the higher rights or if it is the firewall settings update or whatever and then make the changes for the specific problem.

There is a possibility to temporally allow the user admin rights.... not usually a good idea!
