my pc used to have OS win98 se and upgraded it to win2k[all updated to this date] runs with AMD-K6tm w/multimedia extensions, 80MB RAM..
here are my most serious concerns about my pc:
1. any unauthorized user or restricted user[even guest] can get access to C: esp WINNT, program files and documents and settings which contains all the other folders for other users..admin account can even get penetrated..i tried loging in as guest and restricted user and i can get to open/move/modify/even delete files which belongs to other users esp. admin..my problem is how can i solve this vulnerabilities and tighten the security to deny restricted users or guests from getting access to other parts of winows which is supposedly restricted..
here are some srnshots
note: i am logged in as a restricted user and not as admin
there all those directories can easily get accesed!! IS THERE ANY WAY TO WORK THIS OUT so i can TIGHTEN its security and prevent from getting accessed by unauthorized/non-admin user???
2. after i installed an MS .NET framework UPDATE from microsoft, i was surprised when i saw a new user ASPNET which i never created..im having second thoughts whether or not to remove this user account..
3. folders or unnecessary files to be deleted?? in the Documents and Settings directory??
as you can see, there are existing folders of usernames/accounts which i previously removed..should i delete these user[already removed from users] folders??
and these are the curent active users
4. how can i modify settings for other users when i'm logged in as admin??
5.startup is taking waaay to slow..is it because of the programs that runs at start up like zonealarm/winpatrol/teatimer from spybot/ms antispyware?? or are there other unnecessary processes running at startup which can be disabled?? and if there are any..how can i disable them??
that's all my concerns about my pc as for now..
might i add: i have my pc secured for internet[LAN/CABLE] browsing in stealth[passed the test from https://www.grc.com/x/ne.dll?bh0bkyd2
] mode with zonelabs firewall..i have antispywares installed: ad-aware se/spywareblaster/zonedout n IE-spyad/spybot/ms antispyware/AVG/ewido sec. suite i have my pc using HOSTS file from mvps.org using HOSTS Secure..and other security/preventive measures both for IE and FIREFOX..
there..that's all the things i believe i have supplied to the best of my knowing..thou troubleshooting an dmanaging with pc is not my field i'd want to learn dealing w/ it..
thanks in advance..
