It is not a big deal. You have it working for you and this thread now clarifies that we are not talking about the installed version.

You might want to spend more time understanding the info in post #3. It looks like StripMyRights strips away some of the protections put in place by the OS...

Privilege Constants (Windows)

...or maybe I'm just reading MSDN wrong.
Thanks - and thanks to eveyone else also! Your explanations are much appreciated.

Command line that works should be:

From a modified shortcut
C:\Windows\System32\StripMyRights.exe /L N "C:\Program Files(x86)\Opera\\25.0.1614.63\Opera.exe"

From an Elevated Command Prompt:
Change directory to C:
StripMyRights.exe /L N "C:\Program Files(x86)\Opera\\25.0.1614.63\Opera.exe"

I'm still struggling to understand the following:

With StripMyRights disabled and using an Administrator Level Account I am able to save files to protected system folders.

With StripMyRights enabled and using an Administrator Level Account there's no way that I am able to save files to protected system folders.

So if it stripped rights that are enabled by default and as a result removed the ability for files to gain access to system folders (or possibly command line tools) then surely that must be a good thing?

I'm obviously missing something here. LMiller7's Post #29 looks promising.

I think I understand finally!

Okay so here's what I think I understand:

A trojan attempts to download a file to system 32 and execute it.

What happens (when using an Admin Level Account) is:

A UAC Window pops up preventing the download unless the prompt to allow is accepted by the user. Even if the user accepts the download it can't execute without another UAC prompt.

Is this correct?

I've also tried giving reps to all those who have helped but no luck there I'm afraid.

With StripMyRights:

A trojan attempts to download a file to system 32 and execute it.

What happens (when using an Admin Level Account) is:

A UAC Window pops up preventing the download unless the prompt to allow is accepted by the user. The user accepts the download it and saves the file. This action will be blocked and will fail.

Alternative solution

So I've remembered that I've already installed other software that prompts me to allow or block any executable if the file signature isn't in the trusted certificate list. I suppose that makes StrioMyRights redundant - whether it's effective or not!
