mmorpg admin rights

hi. every time i want to play an mmorpg, it always makes me type in the admin password. i dont know the password because my dad is the only one that can have it. i want to play the mmorpg a lot, but my dad is never home or hes busy. is there a way to take off the admin rights of the program so my account as a standard user can always play it?

I may have a related issue. I recently installed Warcraft 3 with "run as admin", which is the only active compatibiliy setting currently. Everything's fine when I play campaign, but if I want to play online through battle.net, I have to manually right click on the shortcut and choose "run as admin" from there. Incidentally, none of my saved campaigns are available when I run the program that way, almost like like I've opened a different installation of the game. Any reason for this? It's as if the "run as admin" compatibility setting isn't being recognized.

Admin rights
Occasionally I need admin rights to do something. I've never set a pass as admin. How do I set myself as admin? No one else uses my laptop. Win 7 Home, 64-bit. I've been running Windows since 3.1 and don't ever remember being asked to prove I'm admin.

admin user lost some admin rights
I can't delete a file from the desktop. When I try, it says to get the rights from the specified admin user (which I'm logged on). The strange thing is that I still can create other users from this account (including admins). Any suggestion on what to do?
