I am on NT4.0 workstation. I have logged on using my account which has restricted access on resources on a certain machine. I want to access the same machine programmatically while logged on to my account such that I have access to all the file-resources (as if the software was having Administrator privileges on that machine) in the remote machine. Is this possible at all? If so how?

Use the API functions:
LogonUser() (creates an access-token of the desired user) and
ImpersonateLoggedOnUser() (using the access-token form LogonUser sets the userpriveliges for the calling process)
