How to make a program that can only run with a admin password on startup while on a standard user?

I want to have this program always open up automatically (in the background) when my computer starts up, however it needs an admin password to start (not to run as administrator). I am using a standard user account just for security reasons, I have full access to admin rights.

    You can't. It does that for a reason.
  2. What program is it?

    It's called Baron Replays, I want to use it to record my league games. I need it open for it to do that.

    If an application requests the admin password, it does that for a reason.
    If you could circumvent that for the application in question, then any application (malware or virus) could circumvent that password request.
    This is at the OS level.

    So I cannot do anything about it?
