Windows 7: Allow running a program for users

Allow running a program for users

Hey... um, I have this problem with running a program in Windows 7. I don't have an admin (since my parents do), and I wanna have access to that program without Windows asking me for the Admin password. I tried from Parental Control ("Allow or block a specific program"), but that was set to "Allow that user to use all programs" ( I still wasn't able to run it). I tried then "allow user specific programs", then it gave me this gigantic list with all the programs (including the one I have my problem with)... I hit the "Check All" button, but it still doesn't run without Admin's permission...

Could I get a little help? :S

Ask your parents to give you access to the program.

My parents have an issue about the amount of time I spend on the PC, not about the programs I use... I have been using the admin user lately (with their awareness), but now I need to run that specific program (like many others [Blizzard Updater]) from my user.

And they wouldn't know how to do that, too. They ask me for such things.

you must set the permission and add the permission group administrator on your user login.

Huh? So you're saying I should turn my regular user into an admin user?
