I'd like a small desktop analog clock similar to the one in Yahoo widgets. The problem is, my office computer will not allow me to install a program. Is there one available that can be manually installed into the program files folder?

You could download this one:

Then open the swf file in an internet explorer window and shrink it down (and turn off the status bar and toolbars in the window) so it sits in a corner.

That might work. How do I change the time zone, and can it be viewed as a 12-hour clock?

Here's a nice little clock program which you can format in a variety of ways...

I like this clock, but I need to get around the installer because my computer won't let me install. Is there some way to manually copy the needed files and install them yourself?

I hate to be a party pooper - but if your helpdesk have locked down your machine it's for a reason - to stop you installing unsupported and possibly dangerous software. In my company doing what you're attempting to do (bypassing security measures) is a firing offence.

My recommendation - go to a store and buy a clock.

No doubt good advice!

The link I posted just runs in a web browser... nothing gets installed :)

Or this one, which I used heavily last time I sat in a cube farm:
