lar (admin)

it would appear that there is only one user account on this machine and it has admin rights. so everything looks ok :) also, you would not have been able to reset the restore points if you did not have admin rights.

What would you suggest I run on a schedule, weekly? monthly? Some of the ones we used??

my approach on my machine is:

1. to keep my antivirus up-to-date all the time and active and also spywareblaster and spywareguard.
2. on a weekly basis to clear out my temp folders (the protection programs will catch the cookies otherwise and cause unneccessary alerts) and then update and to run a full system scan with my anti-virus program, spybot search& destroy and adaware (takes about 2 or so hours).
