    1. Windows-privesc-check

    There are two versions available for download. V1 is currently the more complete version. V2 is incomplete but it does a more thorough job of checking services than v1.

    2. AccessChk

    3. AccessEnum

    4. Windows Permission Identifier

    5. Dark Elevator - hxxp://web.archive.org/web/20100817073927/http://root.net.nz/darkelevator.html. I had trouble getting this program to work.

    Those programs above which are x86 programs may do an incomplete job on x64 systems. For example, Windows-privesc-check doesn't scan the Program Files folder on x64.

    Any other programs?

    You're welcome :)

    By the way, for completeness these programs should be run with admin privileges if possible.
