AFAIK Anitsniff only checks if the WinpCap driver is installed .. so, in my
opinion, is not of much use.
for what concerns local admins access there is an alternative solution that
you may want to consider: NeoExec from NeoValens. It allows you to define
which apps must run with elevated privs while users run with regular privs
.. and, this is not yet another variation of the RunAs theme. Developers can
be secured ...
