Some of my programs (Chess 9000, ACDC, drivers, wireless utilities...) do not run on Non-Administrative accounts under XP. I figure these programs are probably trying to write temp cache and XP is not allowing these account write. Not 100 percent sure, but does anybody know how to get these program running under Non-Administrative accounts?

Thanks,
Roach

The most typical cause is that the programs are trying to write to the Program Files or Windows folder(s) (which regular users have read-only access to by default). The best bet is to use utilities like SysInternals regmon and filemon to monitor which files/registry keys the program is unable to access, then adjust permissions accordingly.
