how to force W7 to ask again the credentials with admin account?

Hi,
I have installed core temp to check the temperature of my CPU.
The probleme is it only works with the admin account, not with a user account and usually, I don't use my admin account to go on the internet, only use the user account ,like that I have to enter my credentiasl if any apps needs to be installed.

The question is:.

Is there any possibility to log on with the admin account but forcing windows 7 to ask again for the credentials if I need to install a apps?

I don't want any apps automaticcaly installed on my pc when I logged on the admin account?
Thank you

See Elevated Program Shortcut without UAC Prompt - Create. This will allow you to still log in with your normal user account, but will let you run any program(s)/application(s) for which you have created a shortcut by following the above Tutorial in Administrative mode.

Thank you for the answer.
But I can't create this task on the user account.I made a test on the admin account and the process you sent me works perfectly.
But I can't create the task when I'm logged on with the user account.

I saw
without the shortcut, it's working with the admin account.

But then, what can I do to have my credentials asked again when I used the admin account if I want to install any apps?

built-in admin account vs regular admin account
Pretty basic question (I think). Is the built-in administrator's account exactly the same as a manually created local administrator's account privilege wise? Or does the built-in possess inherently elevated privileges? I have googled around, however, I can't find a clear answer for this. ...
