Can I use this keyboard at work on a PC that is using Windows 7 Enterprise OS?
I love this keyboard and do not like the basic logictech keyboard that I am provided with at work. My company does not use Apple products; however, I would like to buy an Apple keyboard (wired with numeric keypad) and use it with my PC at work. Is this possible without having system adminstrator permissions on my PC?

It should work fine, unless you want the secondary functions of the "F keys" to work - without Boot Camp software, the volume keys will not operate, for example.
Older versions of Boot Camp support software will work on some generic Windows PCs - I've had good luck with 3.1 and 3.3, I believe, but you should not at any point install a 4.# or 5.# version - they do not uninstall cleanly, and you cannot downgrade to the functional 3.x branch without reinstalling windows.
If all you want is a nice keyboard with short-throw buttons, then it'll work great and the only thing you give up is the rarely-used "ins" key; a "function" key replaces it.
