So true!!!

I’d definitely avoid norton, it’s a computer hog. We’ve found built in window defender combined with malwarebytes to be highly effective at protecting our systems.

We also require our team to keep Windows User Access Control (UAC) enabled to ensure no can not be silently installed by bad actor websites.

The default, built-in UAC elevation component is the credential prompt. By default, UAC is set to notify you whenever apps try to make changes to your PC. We require all users enter their credentials (password) before software can be installed. We only allow elevated user ( admin) to change the computer setting or software. But since your the primary user I’m sure you’ll have admin rights.

A lot of people disable this notification and end up hosting a bunch of the bloatware or denial of service bots because of it.
