Surun is a free software with freely available source code that make working with limited rights under Windows 2000, XP, Server 2003 and Vista makes it easier.

Surun allows certain programs to run with administrative rights, without providing a password without changing the user registry or modify environment variables.

Surun does not run in Windows 95/98/ME.

What's New in This Release:


The Windows 7 Explorer can be launched with elevated privileges
"Surun / BACKUP" and "Surun / Restore" must be run by SYSTEM
Are the two options for a program "program always automagically start with elevated privileges." And "NEVER start program with elevated privileges." Activated, the program starts Surun directly, with limited rights and are the start-control not to Windows.
"Surun's Run as ..." can also be used by non-members of the group SuRunners.
You can set each user to store the real password and use.
This can cause problems when accessing network resources can be prevented.
The password is encrypted with the Windows function CryptProtectData that the real user's password and the "SysKey" in the encryption involves.
Polish language. A big thank you to Junne!
Surun's ShellExecute Hook evaluates the verb "runas" if is "replace Windows 'Run as ...' by Surun's 'Run as ...'" enabled.
The last selected by user "Surun / RunAs ..." will be saved and automatically selected the next time.


In Windows Vista, and will open in a new "Control Panel as administrator" Control Panel Home view, not the symbol.
Used to store passwords Surun the (hopefully) secure Windows CryptProtectData function.
If the Surun service can not start a program with elevated privileges, he first assumes the identity of a local administrator and then to the limited user to it to try again.

Fixed bugs:

From Surun's Context menu extension Surun's entries will be displayed only once.
For Windows 7, it could happen, it was twice for the same folder as "Explorer as an administrator here" to see.
Surun's toolbar icon is more compatible with BlackBox.
HIPS Surun's watchdog for the secure desktop is sedated during the search for domain users.
Was "Request User Password" and the grace period expired actively to Surun ended quietly because of the alleged violation.
Surun's hooks are initialized in a separate thread, because in Windows 7 x64 is a violation of property rights in "SuRunExt.dll_unloaded" was.
Surun's hook has an initialization "Exception-Filter", the initialization will restart in a protection violation.
In Windows 7 Aero Surun could not be installed.
