    Hi,
    i haave got this code
    C:\Documents and Settings\Tim\MyDocuments\MSDN\DropMyRights\DropMyRights.exe "C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe"
    but it dont work
    what do i need to change to make it work?
    i done the drop my rights location followed by space then " and the location of Iexplore
    it says c:/documents cannot be found. it should be able to find it since its called documents and settings.

    this one works
    C:\DropMyRights.exe "C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe"
    but i want to put the drop my rights in the default folder if possible

    The default location when installing almost any program is X:\Program Files\[program name here]

    If your drive is C:\, then it should be C:\Program Files\DropMyRights

    try putting DMR's path in quotes too, like this:

    "C:\Documents and Settings\Tim\MyDocuments\MSDN\DropMyRights\DropMyRights.exe" "C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe"

    btw, isnt there a space missing between My and Documents?

    ok ive got msn messenger now named live messenger as lowered rights and IE7
    anything else worth putting a dropmyrights shortcut for?
    msnmsgr has the lowered rights i checked using process explorer.
    should Microsoft just change the shortcuts via windows update to make it safer for everyone?
    because alot less stupid people would get infected that way.
    dropmyrights is only used by people who care about secuirty.
