Hello Ronan,
Each account, admin or user, has it's OWN password. Passwords are Not interchangeable. Meaning, If you are on an user account, you can NOT enter the admin password. If that's not clear enough, when you want to logon to Mary's account, you have to enter Mary's password, not yours, not anybody's. So, what you want (and I hope I do understand you correctly) is NOT possible.
There is , however, a way around it. Depending on what program is in question, if you are in user account and you need admin privileges, Right click on the program, a popup will appear, click Run As Administrator, then open the program. This only works in some programs. You need a talk with your English teacher.

No no no You got m way off

I want to run a program

Is there a way to make it run with admin privilages WITHOUT having to each time use an admin account to launch it? Like launch it once with admin privlages then never have to do it again and it will launch with admin privlages

Hi Ronan,

I gather that you wish to run a program with administrative privileges from within a standard account. This is not possible. If a program requires administrative credentials in order to execute, it will explicitly ask for them when you run it. Even if you run the program from an account with administrative privileges, it will still ask you to confirm that you want to run that program with administrative status. That is because of the security configuration and architecture of Vista. All accounts run at the highest level of security for their privilege status, and they use tokens to control this. A standard account has 1 token - this gives that account standard limited privileges. An administrative account has 2 tokens, one of which behaves like the token on a standard account. This is the default token that is used when running an administrative account. The other token is the one which can give programs full administrative status. On the occasions where a program needs to be run using administrative credentials, the program will ask you to provide them (from a standard user) or confirm it (from an administrative user). This causes the program to switch from using a standard token to using an administrative token, which allows the program to run at a lower security level and therefore gives it greater access to the system. Generally speaking, it is best for a program to be run at the high level of security that a standard account provides, unless the program will not execute properly. Although in this situation it is often quite possible that the program will run with elevated privileges, the best solution is to see if a patch or upgrade is available to enable the program to run in a standard account with standard privileges.

Hello Ronan,
The answer is : no. Admin privileges stay with the account, not with the program.
