Re: Do you still use Windows?

Windows is fine. It's the user that is the issue.....

(Dump Admin rights, IT and Adobe/Java, click only good links and be an educated user)

I still use Admin rights on my PC. Its MY OWN PC at home. So I know what applications to install and what not.

Now, for the average "Joe" user, this may not be wise to run as Admin.

But for advanced security gurus who know what there doing, then I thinks its all right to be as Admin.

As for IE, I dont think its secure in its "default settings" BUT, however, it can be more secure with granular lockdown policies via the MMC console within Windows. Which is often overlooked here. And via the Local Security Policy settings.
