    Sorry of i'm getting the name wrong there, but I understand this is an app that is suppose to prevent the installation of malicious files through internet explorer, or at least keep the infection to a minimum. Can anyone give me more information and how well it works? Because it looks interesting but I don't want to deploy it unless I get a few opinions.

    Hello,
    Never heard of that software.
    But if you want to run as user, you can use DropMyRights, developed by one of Microsoft guys, which does the same trick.

    I read somewhere that if you upgrade to IE 7 beta 2, a feature equal to this is already in there. As an alternative, maybe you can install IE 7 beta 2 which is pretty stable. I am using it now and other have also stated that they haven't had problems with it.

    Looks like they changed the name "IEcondom" for Defender... :D .

    I did try it before they changed its name, it was working fine; just running IE as user, instead of admin. But only IE.

    Cheers,

    Well I´m still not that impressed, I would rather choose to use DropMyRights or the SRP feature in XP Pro. :rolleyes:

    I use Firefox, so I can't use it. Case closed.
    I don't disapprove this new tool, because MSIE needs that kind of protection.

    You can try RunSafe then; there's a free version allowing to run 3 progs in the user mode ;) .

    Technically any application can be run under Least Privileged Account (LPA) using 1-Defender. The command line is:

    "C:\Program Files\AMUST\1-Defender\1-Defender.exe" %programfiles%\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe

    Unfortunately most of the programs are not designed to work this way. FireFox has it’s own issues.
    We fixed the majority of issues for Microsoft Internet Explorer, Microsoft Outlook and MSN Messenger and currently are working under Mozilla FireFox. Other applications are on our list as well.

    If you have a feedback on specific application you can write us: support@amustsoft.com
