Add the user to 'Power Users' local group or change system policy to 
allow 'Users' or INTERACTIVE group to change system time.
IMHO, it will be better to take some shareware tool, that runs as a 
service on NT.

When installing programs you must be able to write to specific places of 
the disk: 'Program Files' and below, '%WinDir%\System32' and below, also 
you must be able to change and add values to registry HKLM hive.

The best solution, imho, is installing programs as administrator. Or you 
may adjust permitions for these directories.
