Windows 7 Games requiring Admin rights

#1
Some games (e.g. Spore) REQUIRE Administrator rights to run properly. I have my son setup as a standard user and everytime he wants to play he needs me to come upstairs to "Run as administrator" and enter a password. Is there any way around this, perhaps some way to save the password for just this game? This is driving me crazy.

Oh, I have the Windows 7 Home premium edition.

Thanks.

Can you right click, go to properties, Compatibility and check run as administrator? Then maybe click change settings for all users...

Yes, it will always run as an administrator, but will always ask for the admin password. It does not store it, so it seems.
