Windows 7: Administrator Password In User Account

Administrator Password In User Account

Hi

I have a laptop running Windows 7 where I have an administrator account and a user account set up (not the Windows 7 guest account). When someone logs onUo the User account there are two *.exe files which do not run without requesting administrator passwords to run. How do I set these files to run without administrator passwords in the User account? They are not harmful applications and are related to the battery management on the laptop.

Here is a link. Not sure if will help, but helped me.


Add Take Ownership Option Shortcut in Right Click Menu of Windows 7


Go down to the link that says download "take ownership"

Unzip the file, using WinRar.

While in said user account, go to the files you unzipped, double-click the "install Take ownership.reg"

It will install a right-click option in the context menu that allows you to take ownership of a given file or folder.

BE ADVISED: maybe make duplicates of the .exe files in question in case it doesn't work. Or you can re-download them again I guess.

If it works and you are done and happy, you can double-click the "removeTakeownership.reg" and it will remove the entry from your registry as well as the option in the right-click context menu.

Thanks Bare Foot Kid and devildog93

Is there not a way of tweaking the permissions properties of the file?

I sorted this out once then changed the name of my laptop for network purposes and now cannot recall what I previously did. Sure it was just a permissions setting or something?

I don't really want to be installing anything or setting up shortcuts.

Regards
