Let's be honest: despite Windows it has multiple shortcomings, one of the most serious security problems it has are its users. Yes, the users.
We all know that the network is insecure, that virus, spyware, adware and all the spam that is hanging around the world Wide Web it can reach our pc if we don't take care of it. Now the problem is who is responsible for taking care of the poor pc.
We will not fall into the commonplace of saying that users Windows are black and do not take care of their computers O well Viruses come in by themselves and I don't even know about it! because it is clear that most of the security problems are generated by the users themselves, whether by opening emails with attachments from people they do not know, downloading programs from anywhere, leaving accounts open, using insecure software (such as Kazaa ... no no people, Kazaa is BAD) or running anything.
Windows allows, as we know, to define user account with different privileges that define what each person can or cannot do. Very generally, the types of account tend to be:
* Commercial: it is the user who can (obviously) carry out important changes in the system, install and uninstall software, create the other user accounts, access all files, change passwords, etc. There is always at least one Administrator type user in the system, which is the one who should be responsible for the security of the computer and that of the other users, of course.
* Limited: you can access all the programs installed on the system but not install new ones (epa! an interesting restriction). Nor can you create new user accounts, only modify the style (password and image) of your account, not its type or name.
* Invited: You can not create accounts, or modify them, or modify your guest image, or make changes to the system, or ... anything. You cannot do more than use the programs available on your computer. It is interesting to say that these types of users do not need a password. In other words: I could tie someone in front of the pc or just let them watch, and it would have the same effect and privileges as having this type of account.
Therefore, with great care, Microsoft engineers and developers have evaluated the basic profiles of some users who can use Windows with a responsible administrator behind ... widely portrayed in the images we have seen. All home pc's clearly They are managed by administrator users who are not very suitable to care for, evaluate, protect and optimize your equipment and operating system.
As a conclusion we could use the saying or saying that they usually use in my town:
It is not (all) the fault of the pig, but of the one who feeds it
Windows is insecure, yes, but users don't help either ...
