Force-run a program as a regular user in Windows

Ever had a program that keeps asking for administrator rights to run even though you know it doesn’t need them? I hate when developers are too lazy to do things the right way and figure “I’ll just run as the admin and then do what I need to do!” Yeah, great idea, nevermind the giant security issues it poses or the fact that regular users like employees can’t use the program anymore! I could continue, but I’ll say something nasty. Let’s bypass this unnecessary admin request.
