Because of the higher security in Windows 2000, you may not be able to install or run some programs with the standard User account.


By default, Windows does not let a standard user or guest account run programs that access the registry. The program's manufacturer is responsible for issuing the appropriate workaround or patch to allow the program to function properly. These programs may work properly if you use a Power User account or an account with higher privileges.
