XP user access

I have just formated my pc AGAIN..... to stop the kids messing it up again i have made the LIMITED USERS on the pc. I do however want to let the boy play a game online that is installed on the pc. As it is now he cant change any game setting or get online with the game. Is there anyway i can give him permission to access this program without giving admin status. I am using Win XP pro service pack 2.

I don't think you can as SOME online games (such as Battlefield series) require administrative privileges.

You can, however get around this by running the game under your account. Of course this means that your kids will need to ask you to start the game up (which you can do within their account. Simply by right-clicking and selecting 'Run as...")
