This last summer my girlfriend's work (a school) upgraded their computers. It was needed, but now so much is blocked by their admin that I can't put simple programs like SnagIt and others on that she wants. The admin will do it, but only if she has an original disk... well, that's kinda a problem. So my question is, can I get around this admin setting on Windows XP? Most programs I try to install come up saying you need to login as an admin to do this. MOST programs. The ones I could install were: DESKPINS 1.3 POWERISO CCLEANER FIREFOX So, there's some sort of commonality among those programs that got around the admin setting of not allowing an exe file to run. I have no idea what it is, but something allowed those 4 programs to install just fine. I'm stuck after hours and frustrated. I cannot hook her computer into our home network or get in my Verizon wireless card. Any ideas, suggestions, other websites to reference would be great. Thanks!!
