determining if user has shell access

You can use the entire line that you would use in the appropriate  
command window, even changing the command process if need be, even  
changing priority.  You can also elevate the process with 'open  
process elevated' which might get past the blocks (presumably asking  
for a password if needed).  The latter might be good in that the  
solution is not so much to find if it works but to make it work.   
Well, if that works.  I haven't tried it, but I assume you can do the  
command line string and elevated process at the same time.

If you discover anything interesting, that would be cool to learn about.
