No and no. A user account must have Admin right to install applications. The only way around it is to use the Admin account.

You shouldn't be installing applications on school computers with out prior permission but there is a safe mode.

No there isnt a way. If your System Admin has any bit of Brain they made all accounts limited and therefor you cant do it.

So sorry you will either have to convince the Admin to do it or you will just have to live without the Lan game.

If you can get to the command propmt i think there might be a way to get into the Admin account. But i dont know the details of that one.

If the System Admins were smart they would have the Admin Account protected by a password even in Safe Mode. I know i do.
