Windows 7: Google Chrome won't run unless in admin account

Google Chrome won't run unless in admin account

I tried using Chrome portable. It'll run if after installation if I select Run Chrome when the installation is done. It will not run again, saying due to restrictions placed by the administrator. I went to the administrator and he installed the full version and it ran for him. However, it still won't run under my account.

Any ideas?

Did you try right-clicking the icon/shortcut and choosing Run as Administrator?

Yes. For the shortcut. For the actual file. Yes.

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. ...

User Account Control - Preventing Google Chrome Install
As an administrator, I have User Account Control set to "always notify" in Windows 7, but one of my kids (standard user) can still install Google Chrome. Shouldn't this require the administrator password? Also, UAC does not seem to limit a standard user's ability to Uninstall Programs. Is...
