- Subject: how to drop administrator privileges?
I've recently had a test fail because I started it with administrator
privileges (via the Administrator group). The test tried to write to a
file that it set read-only before and of course as an administrator it
was still able to write to it. So the test fail wasn't really that
important, but I can't seem to find a way to drop administrator
privileges once I have a shell opened with "run as administrator". Is
there a command that will shed those rights for a sub-shell?
