Default DropMyRights and IE8

I use DMR for my two browsers FF and IE 8.

However, sometimes my other applications will execute IE to display information or an uninstall survey.

Each time this happens, IE, which is my default browser, is run with Full Rights as indicated by the red PrivBar indicator.

Does anyone know how to configure IE or DMR so that whenever another application executes IE automatically, it is run with limited rights without exception unless I run IE manually?

I doubt that you will be able to.

It is not a question of configuring DMR or IE but the applications which are starting IE as they will be programmed to trigger IE by default and not DMR.

The only safer option that I can see is to use something like Sandboxie and set IE as a Forced Program to always start sandboxed.
It will still start with Full Rights but inside the sandbox.
