    I try to run PowerShell as TrustedInstaller but when I run ‘whoami’ it says ‘nt authority\system’
    Windows version is 17763.1577

    I needed a tool to get rid of all exces files in an image; always got the ‘access denied’ msg.
    AdvancedRun did the job – you made my day !!

  6. Bill says:

    I’ve run cmd.exe and PowerShell.exe as TrustedInstaller. When I run ‘whoami’ it says ‘nt authority\system’. Should WhoAmI be reporting ‘TrustedInstaller’? I’ve seen this behavior on Windows 11 and Windows Server 2016.

    Thank you very much for this.
    Is it possible to launch a trigger so Advancedrun always launches a program with TI privileges whenevr it is called? For example, if cmd is called then AR could automatically make it run with TI privileges
