Windows This week at the Black Hat Security Conference two security researchers will discuss their findings which could completely bring Windows Vista to its knees. According to Dino Dai Zovi, a popular security researcher, "the genius of this is that it's completely reusable. They have attacks that let them load chosen content to a chosen location with chosen permissions. That's completely game over."

A nice workaround to giving someone admin rights just to run a game is using Sandboxie (http://sandboxie.com) to sandbox the game.
I recently used this to run Return to castle Wolfenstein with a regular user account as it wanted to change some files for which admin rights were needed.
Get a registered version and you can sandbox each program seperately and an added bonus might be that each player has their own savegames.
