    I think you should change the title of your article. It's misleading in my opinion. Change it to the title of your post (How to Stay Safe Online).

    Funny you should say that. I completely agree with you.

    This was an article that I took over from somebody else and enhanced. Apparently though, I can't change the title.

    RE: Guide on How to Stay Safe Online

    I created a new article (with essentially the same content) that now has the correct title.

    Check it out. I've updated my first post with the new link.

    Should be mentioned that the quiet mode in TwakUAC removes elevation prompts that appear under the default admin account, it doesn't affect credential prompts from a standard account. Software that you need to use daily will not trigger any prompts: office applications, browsers, instant messaging clients, media players, etc. The common tasks that generate prompts are: updating/(un)installing software, defragmenting, playing some games, imaging your harddrive, changing system settings.

    For me, on what I have been using. I have my search engine set for https://startpage.com/ and with that you can look at a page without opening it fully via ixquick proxy. Not only is that nothing stored like your IP etc.

    And for the 2nd one I have been using for a while is Matspoon (Closethedoor) < is the name of program and it shows your processes and if you see one you’re not sure scan it with closethe door you can kill it.

    In addition, my 3rd and final one is running a DNS service called Sendori not only it helps you get a steady internet service it helps you on typos in the address bar of your browser. For example I may type www.gogel.com Sendori corrects it and takes you to the right site of www.google.com. If I did not have Sendori for instance I would of types www.gogel.com and that would have lead me to a nasty site with a virus added/malware.


    So all of those products I use and that is my setup.

    You may all know on what I have typed already, but I just thought I share.

    Regards

    Nigel.
