let standard user on windows 8 run a program that reqiures admin password without prompt

Last Modified: 2015-03-18
Hi I have locked the users down using gp but need to let standard user on windows 8 run a program that requires an admin password. Its driving me mad they need to use it about 5 times a day and have to keep going around entering my password. Plus have had to change the admin password 3 times due to guessing it. There has to be an easy way either in gp on the clinet pc.
