we have an admin that writes scripts and executes them using RunAsProfessional.  So the files that run are RAP scripts I suppose.  

Anyways, he insists on using our administrator account and not a service account with elevated privileges.  He says that because we have UAC turned on that he can only use administrator.  Please help me find a work-around for this guy as he will not give in.

The workstations are Windows 7 Pro and XP Pro, the Servers are 2008 R2

I would just fire the admin.
