Which OS? I'm presuming windows... 7?Are you sure it needs admin rights, for instance you can install FireFox in another directory of a computer (like the desktop), and not have FF marked as the default browser (because of the registry ACL's). FF will work, it just won't be the default and won't be in "c:\program files" folder.
Many programs are like that too.

Yes, it is windows 7. I'm trying to install the RedBeam program/application, and we need to elevate the user rights to install. We have tried Start>control Panel>User> accounts to disable user accounts didn't work. We need to give the user temp Admin rights to make it work.
