Windows 2000/XP RunAs

Many a times we encounter a scenario, where in we need to log off and login as local administrator to perform administrative task, but in Windows XP its not the case, you can use runas command or right click the executable and select runas, its that simple.

What about Windows 2000 Professional:
Well by default, when windows 2000 professional is installed the runas service is set to startup type: automatically, hence point to the executable, hold shift key and right click to find “run as” option in the context menu or use runas /user:machine\administrator cmd, where machine is the name of your computer and then click ok.
