Another article for observation on various mode of privilege

Silent Switchless Exe (SaferIESI.exe)

Size: 305kb


Installed Directory: Program files\Internet Explorer

Known issue: Does not work with Google Toolbar. Need to disable it first. Otherwise IE will be unresponsive.

Works for IE6 & IE7


SaferIESI.exe contains 2 files

1) Dropmyrights.exe & 2) SaferIE.exe

Safer IE.exe is just an unUPXed autoit compiled script to launch IE in

reduced privilege. You can change to your fav icon. Also, if dropmyrights.exe is

not found in Program files\Internet Explorer folder, an error msg pop up, thereby

alerting the user.

Start Menu: Start -> All Programs -> Internet Explorer -> SaferIE

SaferIE.exe is set to run in Constrained mode

(BTW, DropMyRights can run in 3 modes: Normal , Constrained, Untrusted)
