Windows Program Access Question

Hi Everyone,

I have a question for you. My son wants to play a game on his laptop that's running Win7. The only way I can make it run is in XP mode, but when I launch it from his logon it asks for an admin password to run it. How do I enable it so he can run this program only with out me typing the admin password in everytime?

One way is to use the Taskscheduler to start the application with admin rights. The step-by step guide [here] is for Vista, but it might work with Windows 7.

Trivia Question: first version of Windows with Program Files folder?
I'm thinking the introduction of the Program Files folder coincided with the advent of spaces in paths. Before Program Files you couldn't name a file "My File.txt" people did MyFile.txt or my_file.txt. It must've been one of the 9x but I can't remember.
