Hi, i hope someone here can help me. Somehow, I have a "run as" command
"running" all the time. Whenever I attempt to open/run a program it asks for
permission and which user should be using it. This is very time consuming
and extremely annoying - especially as I did not set this up in the first
place. So, CAN SOMEONE TELL ME HOW TO TURN IT OFF, please??

I cannot open the exe file in windows and nothing else seems to work. Can I
delete it without doing any harm?
Regards

You are a **STAR** , DK, your prog works brilliantly, and your site is now
in my bookmarks. No more annoying pop-ups and time-wasting.
Cheers, R

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\exefile\shell

Make sure there is no default values set.

Where do I need to go to find the file: "HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\exefile\shell"
please? Sorry for my ignorance, but I am a windows novice when things begin
to get technical.
Cheers. R
