A Must With Any Windows System

You should NEVER use a machine with Admin privileges for everyday use. You should always use you computer using a restricted account and certainly not use the machine using your Admin Account unless you need to install software that you know and trust.

Using a restricted account vastly decreases your chances of being compromised with spyware/adware and other nasties as these generally need admin privileges to run. Although you must always remember that you are not entirely safe and you still need to run the appropriate anti-malware virus detection software but it goes a long long way to securing your Windows system.
