Running programs while not in administrator mode

27 February 2011 - 01:09 AM

After getting a very nasty virus, I was told to do my normal daily activities in a different user, not the administrator account. Some things are not running right, and I am not sure why. In another forum here, someone said that you could update MBAM by right clicking on the icon and selecting the administrator profile. That didn't work. It also doesn't work when I try to do that for any program that I want to run under the administrator password. When I right click and choose 'run as' I pick 'the following user' and then administrator. I get a box that comes up and says "Windows cannot access the specified device, path, or file. You may not havve the appropriate permissions to access the item." This happens for every program that I want to run as the administrator.
What suggestions does anyone have? I hate having to log into the administrator profile to update MBAM and all the other stuff that I need to do. I don't want to open myself up for another nasty virus like last time.
