Decided to post here and ask the advice of the masses, since there are some excellent guides on the site, and everyone seems very helpful. I have winxp pro, and have two user accounts enabled. An administrator account for me, and a limited user account for everyone else. Others use this account for games etc, but of course some games need to be run with administrator privileges. The only solutions I can think of are: 1) Change the account type to admin, which I really don't want to do, since I am using NTFS with file permissions set carefully for security. 2) Use 'Run as' everytime they want to play a game (a pain in the ass, since it means I need to be there for the password). Unfortunately it seems that 'Run as' needs to be enabled for each instance the program is run. There is no option to enable 'Run as' for every time the program is run in the future. Or is there? 3) Write a script in VB or C which uses send keys to use 'Run as'. This would send the password, effectively running only selected apps as admin, and I would compile the program into an exe so that my password isn't available to anyone looking for it. I have done quite a bit of searching on the net for other solutions. Ones I have seen are installing the program only on the limited user account and installing the program on both user accounts. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling but have had no luck. I have also seen threads on this site referring to the use of gpedit.msc and other microsoft management tools, but these do not seem to have the specific options I am looking for. I have also heard horror stories of people needing to re-install windows after messing everything up with these tools. Has anyone had similar problems, or can point me in the direction of a certified solution to this?
