    It is not your laptop, therefore you can't install things that the owner of the laptop doesn't want on it. One solution would be to buy your own computer.

    Exactly. It's the school's laptop, not yours. If you want to install your own software, get your own computer.

    To add to what others have already stated, the school gives you a computer for a certain time for educational purposes. The purpose of third party software, in this case Ventrillo, is installed to reduce potential threats from viruses or malware or anything and to prevent uneducational usage. If you must, purchase your own computer but based on this thread I would assume you're in your early teens so I'd say wait it out.

    Duff-Man says...and also to add - I'd guess that when the school gave you the laptop you had to sign some kind of agreement and/or terms of use. I suggest reading through it again as violating it might, at very least, result in them taking the laptop away from you, leaving you with nothing....oh yeah!
