Im trying to setup an xp install for my younger sisters to use without me having to come up there every week to fix it.
I have done the usual of installing all the latest patches, a firewall (outpost), an antivirus(symantec corp) and got them to start using firefox.
I have decided this time instead of giving one of them an admin account (as they tend to just all use it to save time) I will just give them all poweruser status and see if they can break it. Will making them power users help against adware, spyware or will it become an annoyoance for me to keep having to go there to install something for them as admin priveledges is often needed?
what advice would you give me to protect a bunch of clueless users against themselves?
