Run As "Run this program with restricted access"
Posted on 2008-10-28
I am having a problem on one of my servers that was recently hit with a virus. It seems, when logged on as administrator, I cannot access any of the applications in administrative tools by just clicking on them. I have to Right Click -> Runas -> then uncheck the option "Run this program with restrictive access" and then the applications (Computer Management, DNS, ADUC) will run normally. My first thought is that the virus (w32.sillyFDC) changed a reg key and turned the restricted access option on under Runas for all applications. Has anyone ever come across this or know of a way to shut this option off by default? Any help is appreciated!
