What are the methods for elevating privileges for administration?
For security reasons, you must log on to a system as a standard user for most tasks. When you need to perform administrative tasks, you can log on by using a user account that has additional administrative privileges.
By doing so, you limit the ability of malicious software to damage or control your computer systems.You should elevate administrative privileges for an individual application rather than completely logging off and logging on again.
For example, you can open Active Directory Users and Computers with administrative privileges while you are logged on as a user without administrative privileges.You can elevate administrative privileges for an application by performing the following steps:
1 In a graphical user interface (GUI), you need to right-click the appropriate application icon, and then click Run As Administrator.
2 At the command prompt, you need to use the runas command.
