Hello all,

I was wondering does the windows login password give you more security in the aspect of just who can access your PC from your PC or does it give even more? Like give you more security from the net to?

I would rather be a little overkill with my computer. Than to have my computer be killed.

Hello swaMprUnner.

Having a password on all the administrator accounts is always good. I recommend that you don't use an unpassworded admin account for everyday surfing. If you don't want to type in a password everyday, I suggest you create a limited access account without a password. However, it may get frustrating having to log on to the admin account to make system changes.

Some malware will be able to access an unpassworded admin account and do uh... bad things.

Just my opinion anyways.

With Regards,
The Panda
