If you are talking about permissions to install an application, You must know that the permissions are there for a very very good reason!

You DIDNT get this from me.

rename the setup.exe to test.exe
then try.
If they have blocked the rename, there is no other way.

If the game is on a disk there isn't a way to get around the permissions unless you copy the disk to the hard drive and remove the read only from the contents.

At home do you have xp ?
If you do just make alternate accounts for your kids and make them limited accounts.

Install a keylogger on the pc you want to play the game on. Mess something up, call in for a ticket, when the admin logs in, you got his password...
