Windows 7: File Change Permissions with a Standard User Account and Family Safety

File Change Permissions with a Standard User Account and Family Safety

I am currently using family safety to restrict access on my son's computer. To do this, I have set him up with a standard user account with family safety turned on. I like the way it allows me to do all this within Windows 7, but the problem is that every time he loads a new game on, or even when he tries to defragment, it requires me to enter my Admin password to allow it, which can be a real hassle. I have no complaints about any of the rest of the family safety, it just seems to stem from the fact that to turn on family safety on an account, it has to be a standard account, and the standard account can't make any alterations to the machine.

Is there any way to allow him more privileges while using the standard account, so it is less of an intrusion for him and also less of a hassle for me while keeping the family safety restrictions/controls?
Thanks!
