Pretty much exactly what the title says. I want to have a non-admin local account that can still access X-Box Live and my Store account. Is this possible?

Did you try creating a non-admin account and it wasn't able to install apps from the store? – nhinkle Nov 3 '12 at 23:10

  • Run secpol.msc (Windows key + R > type "secpol.msc" > press Enter)
  • Double-click Application Control Policies then double-click AppLocker,
  • Right click on Packaged app Rules and click Create Default Rules

This will create one rule that allows all packaged apps to run for all users.

You can follow this lengthy guide if you want to block specific apps.
