Windows 7: Any Way to Install Things?

Any Way to Install Things?

Hello,

There is a problem installing things on a family computer. Whenever attempted, the install requires that it be installed through the administrator log-in. There is no access to this, and the person that does is unavailable. Is there anything to install things?

Things to be installed include things like GIMP, Steam, and a few games, but they cannot be as long as access the to administrator account is not available. Is there a way around this? Since it is a shared PC, resetting things would rather not be done.

One thing that has been attempted to do was to try logging into Administrator through a start up into safe-mode, but when that is done, there are no accounts at all that show up on the Welcome screen. Is there a way to fix this?

Thank you for taking the time to help, if you are able.

We have no way of knowing whose computer etc, why not ask the admin for permissions.

I second zigzag's advice: Contact the administrator.

That's the reason there are administrator accounts and user accounts.
