Question about Dropmyrights

I have installed dropmyrights

Then i made a shortcut on the desktop , called it like this ,

%programfiles%\DropMyRights\DropMyRights.exe "%programfiles%\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe"

Then i started it , and firefox started , but i am still able to download things from the .browser and save it in my download folder
, and then i can run it

Unless you are running as Administrator with UAC OFF then DropMyRights is already in affect. You don't need it on Windows 7.
