You are welcome Mary.
SuRun is one of my most important pieces of software and a great safety factor at that. My favourite features are contained in the context menus of Windows Explorer, System Menu and Desktop as illustrated in the Attachment.
- Run as Administrator (SuRunner)
- SuRun cmd here
- SuRun Explorer here
- Restart (of a program window) as Administrator (SuRunner)
- Control Panel as Administrator (SuRunner)
You will certainly have experienced by now the considerable relief brought about by those features but I am repeating them here so that others can share it.
As concerns the safety aspect I may be allowed to quote a passage from Wilders Security Forums:
*SuRun uses a secure desktop for sensitive user interaction:
SuRun uses a service to create a secure desktop in the window station
of the users logon session. On that desktop it will ask the user for
permission or the password. The desktop is not accessible by user
applications. Keyboard and mouse hooks will also not work on that
*SuRun does not leave the user in the administrators group.
After creating the administrative process, SuRun removes the user from
the administrators group immediately. So spying even out the
password would not increase the chance that the system could be
infected by malware."
