Run Camtasia program without it being detected

I need to hand my laptop over to someone to install some software on my computer.

during this time I need to make sure this person isn't looking at things on my computer he shouldn't be looking at.

I would like to run the Camtasia screen recording software (Version 8.5.2 (Build 1099) Apr 30, 2015) on my Windows 10 64-bit OS computer without it being obvious that this program is running and recording what is being done.

How can this be done?

Or if this is something that can't be done with Camtasia what are some other screen recording software programs that will do this?

I know of no way to do this with Camtasia.

There are programs that can monitor activity, mainly for IT shops to monitor employees. *BUT* they assume empoyees don't have admin rights.  If you are letting someone *install* programs, that basically becomes worthless.

Laws 3, 6, and 10 certainly apply here. If you don't trust the person, don't let them on your machine. And if you do, you shouldn't need to monitor them. Its an either/or proposition in this case.

I have Camtasia here and I agree with Cliff. No way to run Camtasia undetected.

I also agree that if you do not trust the person, find someone else. Most of us want to fix the problem as quickly as possible and have no time to be looking at your stuff.

Set up a new user id and password and make it a member of Administrators (so the person can install software.
copy all data off the system - that he may not see, and copy it back later
