test if DropMyRights is working
I am using Windows 7 Home premium. My question concerns the free program "DropMyRights". I am this computer's sole user, &, perhaps shortsightedly, set up my profile just the way I like it as an Administrator & want to leave it that way. I recently installed DropMyRights to add security to my internet accessible programs, & want to verify that it is working. I already tried saving a web page from FireFox to my "Windows" folder & to my "Programs" folder, & was ABLE to save to the "Windows" folder using DropMyRights, & without using it. I was UNABLE to save to my Programs folder either way, so in short, using this as a test, there was no difference.
I set my shortcuts as described here -How to Surf More Securely -- I have Process Explorer on this machine but I am unsure as to how I should verify that I am running with less than administrative rights when using the DropMyRights shortcut.
Can anyone please tell me how to verify that DropMyRights is working for me, perhaps specifically, tell me what rights/privileges/permissions differ between administrator & standard user as seen using Process Explorer, or any other reliable way to verify DropMyRights is working? Thanx in advance ---Dilbert A.

I found this - hope it can help someone
I've had a little time to research this further, & found this -- DropMyRights part 3: Living with it | Defensive Computing - CNET News The excellent and free Process Explorer program from Microsoft can be used to check if any program is running in restricted mode or not. Double click on the process, go to the Security tab and look at the Privileges in the bottom half of the window. If there is a single privilege called SeChangeNotifyPrivilege with flags of "Default Enabled" then the process is running in restricted mode. If many privileges are listed (even though most are disabled) then the process is unrestricted. Michael Howard offered a more detailed and technical explanation of this in his January 2005 article "Browsing the Web and Reading E-mail Safely as an Administrator, Part 2."
