    Speaking of Secure-It.
    (hxxp://www.yasc.net/secureit.shtml)
    I'm running Firefox and Thunderbird using the "Run as Normal User (non-admin)" context menu, but is there a way to check it does its thing?
    I'm still able to install themes, so I'm not sure it works.

    TIA,
    François

    You can use Process Explorer to verify that a program is running with limited rights by selecting a process, right-clicking and choosing Properties, going to Security tab, and verifying that the BUILTIN\Administrators item has the flag Deny to the account you are using.

    Thanks.
    In fact, it says "Deny, Owner".
    Is that okay?

    Best!
