Server Fault is a question and answer site for system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

In Windows 7, I am trying to give a Local Group containing a list of specified users permission to access functionality that is normally restricted to Local Admins, such as install/uninstall applications and stop/start/create services.

Is this possible? If so, how do I do it?

EDIT: Oh, and I'd like to do this without adding the group to the local admin account.
