Giving Permission

I have just created a new account and I'd like to allow it to run some programs that I have installed within my main account. Is there any way that I can give 'Run' permission to another user without having to re-install the program?

What happens if you browse to the folder the programs are installed in and start them? If that works, move or copy the icon for the program from the old account tot he new account.

Giving permission to for something to run PERMANENTLY.
Hi Is there any way to get Windows 7 (64bit) not to have to ask permission each time it opens certain specific files? For security reasons I quite like the idea of most executable files needing to get permission to run, but once I have given permission a couple of times it should remember....

Giving up on UAC
After 10 days with Windows 7, I finally just had to give up on UAC and turned it off to get some work done. It was not the notifications that bothered me. I did not mind the notifications. In fact I could see their value. It was all the legacy programs that could not work correctly because they...
