Windows 7: Need Urgent Help! (Admin Password)

Need Urgent Help! (Admin Password)

Hi there :)

Well, on my laptop, my dad has enabled parental controls and put an admin password on it.

I have a separate user account.

I need to use a program but it needs admin privileges, Is there any way to bypass that without asking my dad for the password?

Thanks :)

P.S I can't just reset the admin password because he would notice (he checks the laptop like everyday )

That would not be ethical. We do not support that kind of thing here.
