Usually try to keep on top of security but looking through "Bleeping" as a new user to site I know about 5% with 95 to go.This site is beyond helpful. It excels IMO.

I am sure this on one of the threads but this is my question.

If a Malware/Virus manages to infect your computer and is active. Are you making things easy for it by keeping (any) windows maximized?. I suppose chiefly browser and outlook, but any windows.

I read somewhere it is safer to re-size all your windows and save the customized size.

Thanks.

I suppose you never know but I wouldn't think it would make things any easier or harder for the Malware/Virus to do what it was programmed to do. I guess if you were closing things it was needing to run or something like that.
