Problems installing programs into a "limited" user account

Archived from groups: microsoft.public.windowsxp.newusers (More info?)

I am unable to instal a program in my son's user account (which is a
"Limited" account. )I am not given the option to provide my Adminstrator
passwod to enable me to instal the program. This used to be an option but now
seems to have disappeared.

Can anyone help, as I am not keen to give my son "Administrator" privliges

    Install the program from your administrator account.
    -or-
    Change his account to an administrator, install the program, then change his account back again.
