Specs: Windows XP pro, AMD 3000/ 4GB
I created a limited account for my little brother to use my computer. Windows XP pro. I dont want him to have adminstrator because i am afarid he will mess up the computer.But however, this limited account cannot install anything. my brother wants to play some online games like "Crossfire". How do i go about installing it and enable the access.

I try to installed into my adminstrative account but when i log in to his account, the game is unplayable.

Do you have anyway to install programs in limited account?
