Runas for Windows Explorer

We do a lot of our support for clients remotely. The offer remote assistance functionality in SBS is a real timesaver for us. Although, offering assistance based on username rather than computer would be a nice touch.

Today I was providing remote assistance to a desktop computer that was out of disk space. The user didn't have sufficient permissions to clean up the disk and I didn't want to work outside of the user's profile. So, I wanted to run Windows explorer a Administrator.

Here's the command line:
runas /user:domain\username "explorer /separate"
