Re: Alternative to Windows Explorer

You can start Windows Explorer with run as. All you have to
do is just create a shortcut on your desktop (pointing to
explorer.exe) and then go: SHIFT + right click the icon and
you can use run as.


Dear List,

we are trying to work out a policy, that every admin
should be logged on to his client (WinXP-SP1) with a
non-administrative account (smartcard logon) and start the
programs for administrative tasks with the runas - command
as admistrator. That works rather good, the account cannot
access our fileservers and all the other things that can
be compromised by a worm or virus.
There's just one problem, you can't start windows explorer
with runas. We use the internet explorer  (runas with the
administrative account) for managing file servers, but
this is rather bad (for example there is no automatic
refresh). Is there an alternative to windows explorer with
the same features? The few i found cannot access the
network by typing UNC Paths, only with mapped drives -
they are more useful for local usage.

Best regards,
Thomas
