Windows 7: Allowing access to a non power user to install fonts

Allowing access to a non power user to install fonts

Hi all,
I am a long time troll of this site, this is my 1st time posting. Forgive me if I put my question in the wrong spot.

Does anyone know of a way, to let a non power user add fonts to their computer?

I have a network of users who have standard rights on their computers. They are always asking for fonts to be installed. So they need to get me to just login as a local/domain admin just to install the font locally on their computer.

I am looking for a way to just allow my staff to install the fonts they want without calling me. I don't want to give them local power user, if I can avoid it.

Are they running a OS that has support for Group Policy (sounds like your saying they are in a domain)? If so you might want to take a look at this. group policy - Allowing users to install fonts in Windows 7 (through GPO) - Server Fault
