If you have such a computer get rid of it, it fails the most basic 
of a secure operating system. No program that runs upon it could
ever be relied upon!

The whole concept is evil.

Administrator rights are required for good reason and are a protection
against bad things happening to your data and programs. Work with
it not against it and be grateful it's there.
