Should programs in Windows 7 be installed by clicking run as administrator on the context menu as opposed to double clicking the set-up file?

When you run a program, it asks for administrator authorization. Even if you run the program as an administrator, the program will still need UAC confirmation to run. Running a program as an administrator can be useful when running a batch script that would call administrator-prompted programs, for example, or when scheduling administrator-level tasks.

For your purposes, though, it shouldn't make a difference. :)
