I want to analyse a malware that do not run without administrative previliges.

I know it is risky but still.

How can I debug it with debugger as from entry point?

Because debugger could not start it as administrator. And I Got error

Error Starting Process (create Process, 00000740, uiAccess="true")

    Why not to debug it in isolated environment? Like virtual machine

Some ideas:

  1. Try using Image File Execution Options registry key to automatically run the debugger when the process starts.

  2. Patch an infinite loop (EB FE) at the entry point, start the binary, then attach to it from a debugger started as admin.

  3. Use kernel debugger or hypervisor-based debugger to debug the process without relying on user mode debugging API.
