    I know this is old news, since Vista is out.

    But it is possible to run more than one copy of explorer folder window.

    1. Log on as the user you later want to 'run as'.
    2. In the folder settings, mark 'Run folder window in separate process'.

    Now you will be able to start explorer with the runas command.
    Note that you will have to manually refresh (F5) the window to see changes.
