switch of userrights witout logout

By Underworld ·
Hi,

Does anyone know of a program that enable me to switch user rights witout logging out of the machine and logging in with the admin account?
Users use a GPRS connection to the office, after having problems we want to take control of the machine using VNC witch is installed under the user account. We maybe need to start installation of program's but don't want the user to have acces to those same programs and even have installation rights.

regards, Paul

Open the Windows Control Panel and make sure it is in Classic View (where all the old control panel icons show up.) Hold down the shift key and and right-click on User Accounts icon. Select Run-As from th drop down menu.

Run as allows you to run any program with different credentials. Just eneter the local or domain admin account info and you will be running the User Account program as admin and be able to do anything the admin can even though you are logged in as the user.

This also works for installing applications on computers while logged in as a regular user. You can use Shift Right-Click to show the Run-As option for anything.
