User Accounts Question

Postby c327 » Sun Feb 15, 2015 6:24 am

Your comments on the following statement:

Use a Standard User Account. Don’t use the Administrator Account when using your Windows XP computer for working or browsing the Internet. Use a non-admin Standard User Account to do so.

If the sole user of a PC, still best to have a separate "user" account. The "Administrator" account then will not be as vulnerable to hacking attempts.

It is a way of bring protection to teh admin account, and is useful if the user account gest damaged for virus, hardaware failure, etc. In case of such an event U can always log as Administrator and recover the information from the damaged account

Welcome to Motherboards.org, tmogkawaii.
What 'guidance' do you need? There are a lot of pros here on the Forum, and can guide you with resolving any computer problem. Sometimes, a simple solution solves a difficult issue.
If problems with a computer, post the details of the system build. This makes it easier for diagnostic suggestions.
1) Motherboard model
2) PSU type/wattage
3) CPU version
4) OS version
5) description of problem.
As to passwords and security locks, we do not provide help on those issues, unless of a general nature to all models.
