1. My "Admin." Password (on Vista Home Basic Edition) is simply a filter, or layer of protection LOCALLY (here at my PC) ONLY - correct?? Or could it have something to do ("POTENTIALLY") with internet vulnerability? For instance, say I get ad/mal/spyware (such as a "key-logger" or whatever, on my PC), can "it" then potentially figure-out my ADMIN. PASSWORD???
I'm finding myself further and further "protected", as I visit websites etc., but mostly, it seems that I'm protecting myself, FROM MYSELF (???). It's all becoming VERY confusing. I've set-up a "Master Password" in my Firefox browser, then, as I venture further into the internet, and set-up more accounts, I find myself getting more and more complex (COMPLICATED), when it should actually be just the opposite - shouldn't it?? Theoretically, shouldn't it be just the opposite, with my "filters" becoming less obtrusive (to me), as I get further into the Cyber-World??
