Publisher's description

StripMyRights Utility for Windows XP and Windows Server 2003 which runs applications with reduced rights. If you for instance is logged on as Administrator or another user with administrative privileges on your Windows computer, you can use StripMyRights to run for instance Internet Explorer, Outlook or other programs with the rights of an ordinary user. In this way the security risk of being logged on with elevated privileges may be reduced. The utility is based on the ideas of the DropMyRights tool from Microsoft, but with several features added. If you are using a Windows computer logged on as an administrator, you are taking a risk. Especially if running Web browsers like Internet Explorer or email clients like Outlook. To lower the risk, it would be nice to be able to start Internet Explorer, Outlook and other potential risk-exposing applications in an ordinary user context. With Windows 2000 you had to use the RunAs command, which is cumbersome. With Windows XP Microsoft introduced the API calls SaferCreateLevel and SaferComputeTokenFromLevel, which allows one to Create a token with reduced rights to be used when starting new Processes. Michael Howard, Microsoft Security Engineering, released a utility, DropMyRights to take advantage of this new feature. So StripMyRights is based on the idea of DropMyRights, but adds a few new features: The ability to pass command line arguments, the ability to be started from the HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Image File Execution Options registry key and the abillity to be run as a replacement of the original program.
