Testing Limited User in XP for some extra measure of protection I believe is worth using.
Later SuRun may be an option though I hear the learning curve is steep, no time right now, & ... step by step. SunRun may be overkill, not sure yet.
At these initial test stages frequent switches USER>ADMIN>USER are necessary to tweak Security Restrictions to USERS from within Administrator. Plus, also testing SHADOW DEFENDER virtual disk whose controls can only accessed from Admin.
To speed the process somewhat I placed shortcuts in both Admin & User Quick Launch
Desktop>RtClk>New>Shortcut >Browse>select C:\WINDOWS\system32\tsdiscon.exe>Next>Rename>Assign shortcut key>OK
Choose suitable icon & place in Quick Launch, repeat in USER.
So ... the buttons are one step to a faster more convenient switch USER>ADMIN>USER routine. Simplifying passwords speeds things further.
Next step, if possible, if some kind fellow would assist, is to extend this routine to a batch file including appropriate PASSWORDS enable Quick Launch buttons to complete the switch process USER>ADMIN / ADMIN>USER without intervention.
All advices very much appreciated
Thanks for reading ...
