    Hi guys!

    Please tell me is a Standard User much more secure than an Administrator Account with UAC on Windows 7? And suggest me what the account should I use if I am only a home user?

    Yes, the limited account, it has some restrictions that eventually leave the system more secure, but using an administrator account with UAC in the standard or maximum level is safe too.

    I recommend that you read THIS topic that will help you maintain an administrator account so securely. :thumb:

    Except, if some malware is able to bypass UAC. Then, game over.
