    In the admin account, all the software works like Tor, Privoxy, Process Guard and MJ Registry Watcher. But I'm using Limited account, so none of the mentioned programs work (except with PG with some tweaking).

    So here are my options:
    Admin account with all the security apps I wish to have like Tor, Privoxy etc.
    OR
    Limited account with a set of applications that work (these including my firewall, AV, PG and Prevx)

    Hi,
    I think that running limited account is wiser, but far less convenient.
    So the best thing you can do is combine:
    I use DropMyRights program to reduce the privileges of ie and firefox when i browse. This program is also usable with any other application. What you get is safe surfing using limited browser without privileges, while still retaining admin powers. No need for logging on and off all the time etc.
