Run Programs as System Account

An easy way to run programs (like regedit.exe) as SYSTEM is by using PSExec which is part of the Microsoft Sysinternals Suite.

psexec -i -d -s ProgramName.exe

For example to use PSExec to run regedit on the local machine in the SYSTEM context (and be able to interact with it on the desktop) run the command:

psexec -i -d -s regedit.exe
