Windows 7: Drop My Rights usage in Windows 7

Drop My Rights usage in Windows 7

I'm using an Admin account with UAC enabled at the default setting, and trying to figure out if Drop My Rights is useful in Windows 7. I'm using Process Explorer 12 to determine the "integrity" of the process, which I believe refers to the "rights" level. If I start Firefox using Drop My Rights the Integrity level is "medium", however it is also medium when run without Drop My Rights. Running Internet Explorer 8 shows an integrity level of "Low". I'm not sure what I'm looking at yet and would appreciate your input.

As far as I know, in this particular case you are looking at the UAC dropping your privileges.

That's why it shows "low" when you run IE 8... (I guess it was still "Low" without Drop My Rights)

But Unfortunately I Firefox has very bad integrity with UAC compared to other popular browsers. So that's why it cant run on "low". So it shows you as "Medium".....
