Microsoft provides a command line utility called runas, this command allows programs to be run with other user credentials. The problem with Microsoft runas is that the password needs to be typed each time it is run, therefore it is not ideal for scripting or use in a corporate environment. Encrypted RunAs gets round this problem by creating encrypted shortcuts to programs that needs to be run with different user credentials, so the password does not need to be given to the user. ERunAs uses >128 bit encryption for the shortcuts, the password is encrypted twice using information located on the computer/domain.
