    Although PG has been designed for which adm use it to work on their machines and be still safe from harmful things.
    Anyway, everyday uses should be safer with using limit accounts? Is it that future versions of PG will let limit users still see PG log windows and ofcourse they are still "isolated" from changing things with PG running. Does it break any safe rules to PG's "Philosophy" ?
    PG will log and show to users what is installing a driver? Now, if "blocking install drv" is enabled, PG will show it; otherwises, it does not. Hope to have PG always show such important events to user (ofcourse it always (supports to be) monitors and intercept such.

    No, you won't be able to view the Window Log in any account but the first one which loads it (typically the account which installed ProcessGuard) which has to be an administrative account. The next version of ProcessGuard supports limited user accounts in the "checksum department", meaning each user gets alerts when programs try to run, however apart from this, they cannot change any settings or visually see any difference with ProcessGuard installed.

    ProcessGuard still secures all accounts according to the rules setup by the administrator.

    If the limited user is the same person as the Administrator (or a very trusted person) you can use the RunAs command in XP to have full access to Process Guard while working in the limited user role. I don't use it in a Fast User Switching mode, but if you just log off to change users it seems to work perfectly.
