If this is the same program I installed recently (Typing Instructor for Kids)
then I would first note that this issue is due to the fact that the program
in question is not Vista-comaptible. In fact, it is not compatible with any
version of Windows that came after Windows ME. The issue is that the program
requires modify access to its installation folders in C:\Program Files, which
is unacceptable, of course.
On the other hand, the issue is easy to fix: Simply give your mother-in-law
access to that folder. Right-click on the folder that the program is
installed in, click on the Security tab, the click on the "Edit" button
(administrator access required at this point), click on Users, and put a
check mark in the Modify field. That should do it.
