Being the administrator of your computer gives you limitless access and control, but is it a good thing?
Let me make this completely clear:
It is not good.
The reason is the overwhelming majority (somewhere around 90%) of malware, viruses, and other exploits can only take hold of your computer if you are logged in as the administrator.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m not suggesting that you shouldn’t have admin rights on your own computer. What I am suggesting is that you password protect your admin account, and only access it when you need to install software or make a change to your system.
For the everyday stuff, make yourself a regular user account. It could save you a ton of hassles.
Practice safe computing.
