OK, do not know if I post in the right place but I answer to all those who
answered to me in the first place.
I presume that windows updates of Windows XP function alright if they are
automated regardless the account I'm surfing myself.
I checked and doublechecked it, when I'm surfing without admin rights I see
nothing but if I log in an admin account when off-line, the yellow shield
appears and asks me to install updates or, alternatively when I shut down the
pc I have the option to do so with or without installing the updates.
I presume also, the Vista function in some similar way (didn't check that
I'd like to add this question.
When I first used the Windows XP two things helped me enormously in security
issues that didn't exist in Windows 98, the system restore option and the
admin/user account difference.
Can anybody mention here in one or two words if the Vista have any new
charcteristic equally important for security?
