That is true. However, for most administrators and IT departments "it's just a program" doesn't justify anything. Some companies want to control what's on their computers/network so tightly that every program that is installed must go through rigorous configuration, security testing and certification. I'm not saying that's what the OP's company does, but there are many reasons why a company doesn't want its employees just installing anything they want on company computers - including not wanting their employees to be wasting company time doing personal stuff that has nothing to do with company business.
