After installing some software they only run as admin and have run as admin icon.
How to install the software so that standard user can open it normally and without admin sign icon?

Depending on what that software does, you can't.

If the program is something designed to perform an action that requires admin permissions, it cannot be set up such that a standard user can run it without supplying admin credentials. Two examples: MiniTool Partition Wizard and SpywareBlaster.

You don't identify the program you're having this issue with, but I'd bet its something that needs to perform a task that requires admin permission.
