    Does anyone have any suggestions for a runas software? Currently the company is using this one here, but I have no idea about it or any others either as I've never needed to use one.

    Many thanks for any suggestions.

    No one else uses such a utility program?

    I would imagine that it might be for rolling out certain software. CPAU might be an option.

    I thought it might be. We use Marimba here. All the users get is a list (based off their AD Groups) of software they have available. They click a button to install, another to repair, and a third to uninstall. Everything else is handled with the system.

    If you set it up right, the user gets no prompts for settings, etc. Or at least they dont here.

    As far as I understand it Fergal, it's mainly used to run the vpn client (don't know why though). Another possible use is so that the users can install needed software when they are overseas (and no admin around).

    I use a little program called AlterEgo. Incredebily handy for those of us that run normally under a normal account. Saves you from having to continually type in your password but still protects your admin account while giving you even easier access to things requiring higher level access.

    Pretty slick little tool, unfortuantly...looks like the official page for the program is history. Guess I'll have to try to find a replacment eventually :(
