I (and all my co-workers) used to have administrative rights to our computers. Now, as we are updated with new computers we have lost those rights. Is there any way that I can by-pass the "block" that prevents me from downloading software, updates, etc.? In fact, I can not even remove the myriad of stupid icons that the IT people placed on my desktop - at least there may be a way I can do this?

Yep, ask your boss or IT Dept. to remove the restrictions.

Other than that NO and we will not halp anyone circumvent company policy/restrictions.
