There is no built-in administrative way to do this in Windows.
The "correct" way for this to be done in the Windows world is for the
user-facing application to run with the privileges of the user, and then
access the information through a privileged windows service that supposedly
enforces whatever security policy you have set as an administrator.
In addition, are you certain that the information that you want to be
displayed to the standard user is actually restricted to admins only?
Generally, a lot of OS information can be seen by non-admins in read-only
