My Uncle turned me on to the Microsoft PS Tools, which include a program 
called PSSExec. With this program you can run your internet facing 
programs with restricted privileges, which will prevent you from 
suffering the effects of any mistakes you make while surfing the web or 
reading emails. 8-) Get it here -


And there is a primer on their usage here -


To use PSExec with your internet programs put the following on the 
command line in front of their calls in their shortcuts. -

C:\windows\system32\psexec.exe -l -d

This assumes that you copy psexec.exe into the Windows\System folder, 
change the above path to reflect where you decide to put it. This same 
program can be used with different switches to run programs in admin 
mode from within a restricted user account as well.
