    Is there any way to allow the "limited" account user to have certain rights, as updating, downloading, and loading programs? Right now to do any of those I need to get the admin to log on, and he's getting annoyed with the constant updates, so is there a way to grant certain rights to the limited user?

    What operating system do you have?

    For example, if you have XP Pro, you can right click on My Computer / Manage / Local Users and Groups / Users
    Select the user you want and change the group they are a member of.
