There really isnt a way around that as the user profile was designed to not allow a non-administrative user to change the local machine. So you either install all the programs the user needs or give them the password and then change it later. Cheers.

just create a file container


that way you click on the file container. then enter password and its mounted as a virtual drive



its free and easy to use

I have been using Truecrypt since 2008. I love it, its secure and its easy to use, and if the password is long enough your not getting in there this millenium.

BUT if you ever forget the password it is gone, there is no back door, gone, forever. Really important that you understand that.

Or you could use windows built-in encrypt. But yes, truecrypt is better.
