So I can't install my adobe acrobat pro unless I'm logged in under admin.
Any idea how I can do this to my other account?
This happens with multiple programs, not just adobe.
I am running windows xp Pro
This is the way XP is supposed to work. In order to let your kids or whoever use your computer you set them up a limited account so they do not have sufficent privliages to install crud-ware onto your machine. The only way to install or uninstall a program is with an administrator account or to right click the program and select 'Run As'
