how to disable admin prompt everytime i want to install


keep getting this admin prompt to enter username and password when i install something. the machine is part of a network. and i am logged in as a user. how do i change settings so a user never gets the prompt.

i have administrator access to log on to this computer to make changes if need be.

its just annoying to keep entering the details again and again.

Easiest is when you get rid of the password - which is of little use anyhow.
