The situation here:
All users are created on Active Directory. Domain Users (standard users) have trouble opening some programs as it asks for administrator privileges (programs like "attendance software" & "VMS").

i have tried to make these users Domain Admins & Administrators then installed these programs, the programs started normally, but after i removed their administrative privileges the issue occurred again.

users facing this issue are using Windows 7.

what is the solution for such issue?

Just give the designated Users(s) access under the particular app using APP Permissions. Just because you installed with them as Temp Admins. didn't give them any permanent status.

I gave the user who is facing this issue full permission on the security tap in the properties of the program and restarted the pc but still the program asks for administrator permission. i even opened the advanced tap under the security tap and made this user the owner but still!!

What AV are you using? Does the app work for the user with AV turned off?

It looks like the problem is in Group Policy. See what restrictions you've placed.

Could you create a new user on active directory and if it works delete the problem one?

Safest to download the program directly from source. Any other website could have altered the contents of the original file(s) -- such as adding malware and/or advertising -- before re-posting it for download on their website.

Often the issue is the domain users group is in the Standard User group of the PC. On the PC, go to control panel>administrative tools>computer management and see what permissions domain users have. I don't recommend adding domain user to local administrators necessarily, but it's worth testing.
