Windows 7: Administrator Woes

Administrator Woes

Hi I was wondering how do you add a program for standard users to use without prompting a password?

I'm an administrator in my house and I dont want my PC cluttered with programs that my sister installs sometimes so I made her a standard user account. Problem is that a program, Realtek, the one that helps connect to the internet keeps popping out a UAC prompt telling her to input the password and if she doesn't the internet wont work for her, this goes with ATI catalyst as well. Anyway to add these programs in the "safe list" so that they wont prompt for a password anymore?

Thanks!

One way would be to run those to as admin. that would keep the previous situation preventing her from installing while allowing the 2 apps to run. Instruction how to are here Elevated Program Shortcut without UAC Prompt - Create
