Hey Guys
Just thought I would mention this to anyone having trouble with IE7 and the 'runas' feature
I've been looking into this for quite some time, and have finally managed to resolve the issue.
Please try out and let me know how you get on

1) Right click IE in the quick launch section near the start button, and select 'Run as...'
2) Enter your elevated domain credentials
3) In the address bar, type C:\
4) You will find that your local C:\ will appear in a new window
5) You will now find that this window has your elevated security rights, so you can access control panel, network shares etc.

Why not just goto START>ALL PROGRAMS>ACCESORIES> R-click on WINDOWS EXPLORER and select "run as" or paste a shortcut on the desktop to Windows Explorer?
Typically you'd want to run IE with lower security permissions while you are Administrator (which is the exact opposite of your example: running IE as Admin while User). Many people simply run as Admin all the time. If you know someone like this you might want to suggest "DropMyRights" from Microsoft. DropMyRights does what it says it does, it runs IE safely from the Admin account. see microsoft details if you're interested: http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms972827.aspx
I'm wondering what is wrong with running IE as a User while you are Admin (instead of using dropmyrights)?
