Oh yes,  it is called "$(*@_@&R%** crappy PC software".  If the software is
broken and needs Admin privileges you don't have much of a choice,  but you can
still apply policies to an account with Admin privileges.

And don't forget to write a very nasty letter to the software shop telling them
to fix their software their non-compatble software!
