|When setting up Windows XP for a single user, should I be setting the type of user account as a limited account? The anti-virus software I currently use gives me a pop up warning that my current account has administrator privelages. I already installed all my software and set all my settings and stuff, so I am not likely to change anything and reload all my programs again. |
I remember when Windows XP first loaded and asked me for a Administrator password, but I skipped that step, as well as all others that had the "skip" option.
Is there anything I should be doing better that I might have missed when first loading Windows?
Will creating a limited type account be more secure?
Running a limited account, will that be more like using a terminal type computer that you can rent out at any cyber cafe, as in that while running as a limited account, one can not change system settings and such?
Wich is more likely to take more damage, running an account as an administrator or using a limited type account.
I don't know much about that kind of stuff and would like to hear or view good articles that help explain the difference and what one should run.
