I've read this in the known issues

"Running an application as "run safer" with the green border indicator enabled on Windows Vista and later will disable Aero for that application"

I am running Windows 7 x64. What is happening to me when using run safer is that no green border indicator in shown. I turned off aero and make sure that the Show border is checked. Any ideas?EDIT: I tried it in my admin account and run safer worked properly. In my standard user account, it didn't work.

OK, we'll probably need some logs to see what the problem is. Open Online Armor, go to 'Options' in the menu on the left, click the little check box to enable debug mode (just above the "Run Safety Check Wizard", restart your computer (Debug Mode will not be enabled until after your computer is restarted), and then try launching a program in "Run Safer" mode. After that, please ZIP your entire logs folder (normally C:\Program Files\Online Armor\Logs) and attach it to a reply for me. Note that, if you don't have a utility such as 7-Zip, WinZip, or WinRar that you can ZIP files and folders by right-clicking on them, going to "Send To", and clicking on "Compressed (zipped) Folder".

If the file it too large to attach to a reply, then let me know, and I will send you a private message with instructions on how to get it to us.

Edit: Scratch that. Our developers just reminded me that RunSafer just executes an application with restricted rights. When running as a "Standard User" your applications are already running with restricted rights, so RunSafer doesn't actually do anything when running applications under a "Standard User" account, which is why no border is displayed around the window of a program that is set to execute in RunSafer mode. ;)
