  1. How can malware be installed by a non-admin account ?


    This post is a follow up question to my previous post here. In my previous post I asked if malware can be installed without an admin account. After some answers I got and after some searching, I found out that it actually can. However, no article I read described how it is done. Does it need an exploit? Or does it manipulate some feature? Thanks in advance for your answers!

    RDP to non-admin account not working


    I can RDP to an account that is an admin account but not to a non-admin account.
    I have read to check the users and make sure the appropriate accounts have been added to the user list but the option to view or edit the user list is missing from my settings window:

    is there something I can check/change in the reg editor or in group policies or something to make this appear or perhaps just to enable it directly for that account?
    For reference this appears the same if I'm logged in as admin or as non-admin. (have to give admin privileges anyway to see this window in the first place)
    Thanks to anyone who can help

    ATITool 0.24 in non-admin user

    Hmm, strange thing. I uninstalled v0.24 and installed v0.23, which works fine. After I read your advices, I installed v0.24 again and "Voila!", it starts in PowerUsers (non-admin) without errors/complains.
    Thank you for your suggestions and sorry for the post.
