Admin rights and .exe

My school has taken away are admin rights and we can't download .exe's. I thought maybe there was a way to convert a .exe to.zip. I searched around but all the program to download but I needed admin rights. Please tell me a way to download the .exe's or convert them to .zip's.

Pal sorry to say but there's a reason why these rights have been taken away form school. .exe files can cause all kinds of problems for the people trying to give you a decent education. The teachers and IT staff are only looking after yours and their own best interests.
Trying to circumnavigate their security is only going to break the rules that they have put in place to try and protect the systems that they have spent allot of time, money and resources on

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?
