Lately I've been considering my OS X usage habits. I am both the admin and primary--er, only--user of my computer. I'm not sure if this is a good idea. Isn't there malware/spyware maybe out there that might sniff out my keys or something if I'm in admin? At any rate, I started a new "standard" priveleges account that it defaults to when loading instead of the admin one, but now I have to start over! All my widgets, finder folders, smart folders, etc are all back to default. I just don't want to have to deal with that hassle, so I logged out and back into Admin position.
Any advice? Is it okay/safe to just run as Admin all the time in OS X? Yeah, I know I get password prompts for any serious actions, but still...
For some reason I think Ghandi
had some insight on this, but for all we know those posts are all nuked.
