Anyone finding the 'Principle of Least Privilege' not as easy to work with since moving to IE7?  I restrict my personal acct the same as anyone else for daily work, even though I'm admin.  When I need admin rights, I use the admin level acct.  I used to be able to runas in IE6 and older with elevated rights and then change the location away from the web and instead to C: OR \\computername\C$ and effectively have a windows explorer window with elevated rights WITHOUT LOGGING OFF or doing any furhter "runas" commands.  Can't do it anymore in IE7.  Anyone have a good workaround with IE7 or an equally effective alternative to escalate privileges in windows explorer w/o logging off and w/o having to keep doing runas commands?
