Hello folks, ok i have a problem regarding admin/user accounts on my Vista machine, basically i have a program i want to run on a standard user account but the software requires administrator rights to run, however i dont want to leave my machine logged into an Administrator account as i do not want any changes to be made on the machine, i require when the machine is booted up it automatically logs into a Standard User account and the program i wish to use also autoruns on this account, the machine is only used for this sole purpose to run this specific software and nothing else, the machine is left on various sites so i dont want anybody having adminstrator rights allowing major changes to be made, i have sorted out the auto logon and the auto startup for the software but i can only run the software on an Administrator Account

Can anybody advise me on how i can make this work if possible

Thanks in advance
