UAC in Win7 installing a program

I need to install a program but UAC seems to be giving me an issue. If these settings are changed as follows the install works.

“UAC: Behavior of the elevation prompt for Admins in Admin Approval mode” to “elevate without prompting”

and

“UAC: Run all administrators in Admin Approval Mode” to “Disabled”

Since group policy is applying these settings I cannot change them on the local secuity policy even as admin. The only solution for now is to move machines that need the software into a temporary OU. Looking for a better solution than this. Any ideas??? Thanks!

Knock the clock off 10 minutes and then the GPO should fail

Simply use an account that is not governed by UAC: there are exactly 2: the local administrator by the name of "administrator" which needs to be activated first, or the local system account which you can instruct to install your software by using start scripts or MSI packages (or even self made WSUS packages).
