    Having CIS with those settings, do You really need NVT EXE Radar Pro in lock down mode? :unsure: :unsure:
    I know..its way above overkill...just to satisfy my inner paranoid thingy...and my 9 year old daughter always gets irritated whenever she tries to install something from free cds she receives with her monthly kids magazine and she says " your laptop is old..nothing works on it".

    If you have kids, then you should have a LUA, no excuses at all. Admin privileges should be left to yourself or a suitable other. Especially as you stated your kid tries to install multiple CDs from a kids magazine. Never know what PUP gets installed alongside this. I think CIS should be the only package installed, there is no need for NVT Exe Radar Pro at all. CIS + LUA should be sufficient.

    Good config otherwise, sorry for the abrupt approach, but over paranoid thinking is also a security weakness on it's own sometimes. :p
