    How Safe (from Malware) is UniGuest?

    I rarely stay in Hotels. This week I stayed in a Hotel for the first time in years. Their shared Hotel Guest PC's had UniGuest. I only used them for web browsing. I would never use these PC's to access accounts (even E-Mail accounts).

    Thanks in Advance.

    Keep it that way! :thumb:
    UniGuest can be found in many places,
    but I would Not trust the Security/Privacy of a PC located
    in a Public place (Hotel, Cafe, Airport etc.)

    I am now in a Hotel that does not have UniGuest. It appears (not sure) that they have a Windows XP Limited User Account. I also see the DeepFreeze Icon in the tray, but I cannot access DeepFreeze. I restarted the PC, but it appears to me that DeepFreeze did not clear out the Windows Explorer History, etc. The Hotel PC has a ZoneAlarm Security Suite installed.

    It suddenly hit me that the Hotel probably does not have the Dell Boot Option Menu disabled. So here I am using SeaMonkey 2.13.1 in Puppy Linux Precise (loaded from a USB Flash Drive which was made with YUMI) to make this forum Post. When Pupply Linux Precise booted, the first thing that I did was to turn on the firewall.
