what are the steps to create a profile on VISTA
what is required:
- least amount of privileges

malwares infect have the opportunity to roam and cause deeper damage when you log in with super-user profile
what I am looking for is to have the least/practical privileges , so in case of infection malwares won't be able to succeed 100%
A dispensable profile, if it gets infected, I could just delete and move on to create another one
i.e a sandbox with nothing useful in it for malwares

and thank you

Would it not be more beneficial to purchase suitable software to guard against infections save creating new accounts every five minutes?
