how to personalize "run as" ?

Hello, I have the following problem:

Where I work I don't have administrator rights on my desktop computer, which has Windows XP installed on it. I run a software for which there is a limited number of licenses for everyone in our department. So, to run the software I do the following:

1) Right click the icon of the program and choose "Run as"
2) I mark "The following user"
3) I introduce a username and password.

My question: Is there any way of personalizing the "run as" feature, either through a batch file or whatever so that I can do all these steps at once?

I would greatly appreciate any help with this matter.
