Browing file shares with elevated rights

My normal logon account has normal permissions in which my email and normal user account features are tied to. I have an elevated account that has access to some file shares that the normal account does not. Back in WXP, I would just do a RunAs on Internet Explorer or Explorer, type in my elevated account, then browse to the file share I needed access to. In Windows 7, I cannot figure out a way to get this to work. When I do a Run As Different User on IE8, then try to access a file share, it tells me it cannot find the path. Other methods to do this on Explorer.exe result in simillar messages, or sometimes the application not launching at all.

I know with Vista and W7 that many of these features were stripped out for security reasons, but surely that has to be a way to access these file shares without having to log out of my normal account and log in with the elevated one. Any help is appreciated.
