I like many others, extra so here on MT know many ways one can " harden " an account/system or a machine, but I'm still not sure what exactly you mean with " configure the admin account for trusted and signed executables; elevation only with admin credentials on safe environment, do you think I'm more safe "?For example if i configuire the admin account to elevation only trusted and signed executables; elevation only with admin credencials on safe environment, do you think i more safe in this way that im using?
One of the fastest and easiest way is simply using a SUA account as it's always " better/more safe ". One can of course get nuked and infected and loose credentials even with a SUA, very normal with so called reckless users, but using a SUA is a very old basic security advice that more should use. That is for sure not only related to F-Secure and their specific issue in this thread.
