Running Process Explorer as admin?

I have a home-office computer running Windows 7 HP 32. Is there any advantage to running Sysinternals Process Explorer as Administrator? I've tried it and can not see any difference. Just wondered if I was missing anything useful by not running it elevated.

You miss nothing. PE does not need elevated mode.
