[quote=siria] I very strongly support more user rights too, and had no idea those can be set by an installer - great news for me :) But frankly am surprised about this: [quote=disrupted]i don't think the macros can be used maliciously in kmeleon especially after 1.5.3 which be default runs in limited accessibilty and macros cannot execute any system commands like acpi events and the most it can run from the system is notepad.exe.. and macros in general cannot access system core files or commands unless kmeleon was deliberately launch with the norestrict parameter.[/quote] Just checked on my [b]VISTA[/b] notebook which still has all those unbearable UAC restrictions and isn't really usable, only there to ruin my nerves. And switched to a "normal" user account for checking. Is it only because [b]my KM (portable with profiles inside) is in another folder[/b], not in the default programs folder, that [b]customizing [/b]skins seems to work, but also starting all sorts of programs with a macro works? Frankly that seems highly risky to me, a macro can seem to start all sorts of dos commands and js commands, and start other tools like FSCapture for screenshots. But malicious tools could also be included in a extension of course, although not really needed, thinking of dos... Frankly that's one of the reasons why I still *greatly* prefer zips for installing, I can first unzip them and examine the contents, to figure out exactly what files it's installing before really doing so :cool: Am always very uneasy with setups and if finding no workaround (if 7z can't unzip the 'setup'), often rather drop the whole thing and look instead for other tools. I think the user should have a chance to decide himself how many writing rights to grant, first at installation, and later have an option to switch again, with the help of a menu entry. And it should come with enough explanations, so he need not be a vista/7 specialist to know what that means.[/quote]
