Is this program recommended?
What are your comments?
Here's an older thread Okanagan. http://www.wilderssecurity.com/showthread.php?t=185791
but i suggest to login as limited user always
it is safer than dropmyrights
IMO, this is a fantastic program.After downloading DMR to your program files, you simply create an additional desktop shortcut,for every program ,you want to use with limited rights.For example the targets for thunderbird,firefox and IE are
"C:\Program Files\DropMyRights\DropMyRights.exe" "C:\Program Files\Mozilla Thunderbird\thunderbird.exe"
"C:\Program Files\DropMyRights\DropMyRights.exe" "C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe"
"C:\Program Files\DropMyRights\DropMyRights.exe" "C:\program files\internet explorer\iexplore.exe"
You can copy and paste these when creating new shortcuts,also in the properties of the shortcut,where it says 'run' choose minimized.
I use Drop My Rights (DMR) for all internet-accessing programs and have no problem with it. I haven't encountered any conflicts (yet).
It doesn't run in realtime (sucking up resources and delaying context menus) and just runs when loading a program. Nothing stays in memory all the time.
I use Firefox, and whenever I install a new extension, that is the only time you have to restart Firefox directly (not through DMR) to install the new extension. Once installed, I close Firefox and load it again through the DMR shortcut.
Thank you all for your input.
I guess, I'll go for it.
You can also create a icon to DropMyRights on your desktop, then drag and drop a file onto it to run it without admin rights.
