Default Bypassing Administrative Restrictions on XP

Hey everyone, so im at my friends house and his dad set it up so he cant install any new software or programs on his computer. Is there anyway to get around this? I'm really looking to installsome programsonhis computer, mainly a torrent and tune up Utilities. Any help is appreciated.

Nope. Methinks you should respect dad's authority and leave well enough alone. You could always sit down with the dad and discuss the apps you would like to install for his son.

I would respect daddy's decision on doing that, he's done it for a reason. Also, we don't know your at your mates, you could be at the MI5 server or something.. haha.
