I now have some time to go back & see where I messed up in the 24-step sequence you linked me to.
I then noticed this right at the beginning of the tutorial (see attached).
So I'm back to square 1.

Any other ideas / suggestions?

Thanks in advance for everybody's time & patience in this.

No way I can give my son admin's rights, and disabling UAC's not an option either.

Still hoping for a workaround from someone...

Thanks for the time & attempts at assistance.

you can make a batch file that can run a program as another user. very similar to putting in your credentials but your creds are in the batch file. which is insecure.

I still wouldn't know how to do that - I trust my son, just don't want him downloading and installing programs without permission (which he's done in the past). If the batch file would be insecure locally I'd have no prob with it, but if it would compromise security beyond my home network, I'd have to pass.

When I started this thread I believed it would be an "easy fix" - regedit. Somewhere in the program's registry keys I believed there'd be a 1 that needs to be changed to a 0, and that would remove the admin's shield from this program.
It's not a system-altering product (AV, etc.) - just an on-line "shoot 'em up" game, and I still can't understand why 7 installs it demanding highest privileges...

Sorry about the time of response. I was out of town.
You may be able to use number 3. and apply settings to all users and see if that works. :S

Ivan, I greatly appreciate your time & effort, but what do you mean when you say, "use number 3"?
Number 3 what?

Perhaps I'm just too old fashioned but if my son comes and installs an online game that needs admin privileges to run. (what for ?? to cache some pics?) .Sorry but that's not gonna happen any time soon.
