[QUOTE=coolcolors;2675628]I can tell ya the hackers love you for your decision as well. Whether or not you go W7 is no concern to us but you should consider your browser and internet security as the reason to use a more secure O/S that still has support for it. W7 main good point is to be able to separate Admin from Users unlike XP in which all users are Admin and cause XP Admin problem you can gurantee that will make your XP wide open to security problems. As in W7 admin can be pswd separate and anything a user account causes is on their own account and can be wiped out preventing problem migrating to the Admin account. That the biggest benefit user accounts go bad wipe it out and Admin is safe for XP admin and user account is tied same privileges one has problem so does the other one. That the biggest security flaw in XP and trust me hackers most likely will target those using XP just for this security flaw. You might say they will never get me and then I will say how do you know that-they set so many traps and you will never see them since they compromised XP security on you system already.[/QUOTE]
Not sure what you are getting at. Admin & standard user accounts have been available since Windows NT4. Windows XP is based on Win2000, which is based on Win NT4.
I have my parents on a limited user account, because my father has a tendency to click ok, ok, ok, ok to everything, without reading the popup message, and that’s win xp. If they need this install any programs, a popup demands an admin account name and password to continue.
It stops most problems.
There’ s not much I can do about him unplugging every power, phone, network, usb and video cable and then not knowing where everything goes . Rotflmao.
