How effective is UAC Always Notify without an account password?

A simple PIN can prevent unauthorised changes to your environment.
I do not need a password to log the system because I am the only user of this laptop.
That's like saying : I do not need to lock my doors to access my apartment, because I am the only one who lives there. Wouldn't that be great if the world was this easy?

as I wrote before, I am the only user of this laptop and I do not take it anywhere, it is in my room.
I don't like having problems with running it.
I'm alone with my wife and she doesn't know it, she can't even start it.
UAC works fine.

three browsers because I like the Vivaldi browser is fast and interesting.
Mozilla for business and banking.
Edge good for entertainment - (watching movies).
You choice the weakest for banking. Not a good idea

And as for the optimization tool, what do you propose?
None Third-Party tools. Use Windows internal cleaning and if you need more features, use Microsoft Sysinternals tools like Autoruns or ProcessExplorer.
