    Just setup an administrator account on windows and make a guest or public user as well. Users can access installed programs, but are prompted for admin credentials when trying to install a new program. This also doesn't interfere with saving files. So guests for example, can open a word processor and save docs without the need for a password. Users can also download files, just not install them.

    Hit the windows forums for more info about setting up an administrator account. It's in all there, you just needed someone to point you in the right direction.
  5. actually i tried that before , some games aren't working due to the UAC and creating an excess User to the computers but thanks for the tips guess it's the only way :( :hello:

    Some people would recommend against it, but you can turn off the UAC along with the admin account and it should be secure. Have you tried a lower setting on the UAC?
