RunAs is great..but that is only good once you create a
normal user -
and then delete your new default user. Or you log in in
and take away the full control of the default user. Easy for the
average window user? Nope. If it was Microsoft would make

Thank you. Sometimes i feel the message doesn't get across.
Run as is a false sense of security. Majority of MS apps (
that gets owned ) run with Admin or Local System priviledges.
Does Run as works on IE ? on Office ? on IIS ?
My point was that instead of 'hiding' computer knowledge from
, and introducing false 'hyped' security such as 'RunAs',
assuming his stupidity, i think people will be likely to
understand that to install a program they would have to use a
different account than from browsing pages. Especially when
the company behind has lots of $$$ to make it friendly and
understood. 15 years ago people thought only a few people
will ever use email......
