Windows Non-admin Hall Of Shame

November 29, 2005

"This wiki page is dedicated to the thousands of applications that break when run as non-admin. I've moved the HallOfShame here so that people can add their own anecdotes. Please just follow the convention of using the HOS suffix for each HOS wikiword. Thanks! Please do take the time to notify the company of the problem. You can make a difference."

I always recommend that users run with a non-admin user account to avoid being overtaken by malware. I get a lot of push-back from users and administrators, and with good reason in some cases, the applications just don't run unless you have administrative rights. Please follow up with your vendors and ask them to fix their code. Hall Of Shame Homepage .com
