SuRun 1.2.1.0

Start applications with elevated rights without needing administrator credentials, create a customized list with programs to allow, and more
SuRun is a simple-to-use software application which gives you the possibility to start programs without the need of administrative privileges. It does not come equipped with complicated options or configuration parameters, making it accessible to all types of users.

Customize the setup package

During installation it is possible to set "Administrator" instead of "Object creator" as the default owner for objects created by admins, as well as to open the configuration panel right after setup. It is necessary to log off before using SuRun.

Configure administrative settings

The tool can be asked to prompt users for their password, show a blurred user desktop as the background, fade the desktop in, and automatically press the cancel button after a given time frame. The timeout can be displayed with a progress bar.

What's more, it is possible to integrate SuRun into the Windows Explorer context menu. All settings can be backed up to file and restored at a later time.

Manage user groups

The software utility lets you administer user groups and their permissions, such as changing SuRun settings, requiring a user password to access them, and running only predefined programs with elevated rights. The user status can be shown in the taskbar and balloon tips. After populating the list with apps, it can be exported to file and imported later.

Evaluation and conclusion

SuRun leaves a small footprint on system resources, so it doesn't hog CPU and RAM. It did not hang, crash or pop up error notifications in our testing. To sum it up, this software tool sports a handy configuration set for better managing administrative privileges and user rights.
