    When I'm a regular user in windows 2000 i.e. not admin or power user and I want to install a program, I would hold down the shift key and right click on the installation file and select "Run As", then I could enter the admin credentials and install the program without switching user accounts.
    But this doesn't seem to work in windows xp. Anyone know an alternate way to accomplishing this?
