Running as System Account

Sysinternals Suite By Mark Russinovich http://download.sysinternals.com/files/SysinternalsSuite.zip is an essential group of tools for anyone working with Microsoft platforms.

An easy way to get a CMD prompt as SYSTEM is to grab PSEXEC from Microsoft Sysinternals:

1. Download PSEXEC and unzip to some folder.

2. Open an elevated CMD prompt as an administrator.

3. Navigate to the folder where you unzipped PSEXEC.EXE

4. Run:

PSEXEC -i -s -d CMD

5. You will have a new CMD prompt open, as though by magic.

6. Type the following in the new CMD prompt to prove who you are:

WHOAMI /USER
