HMPA can't stop bugging people's computers
AppGuard at protected level
I used to run additional softs because I was worried about what noobs might do on the other user accounts on this PC (they are on standard user accounts). But then I realized that I personally have nothing to worry about, because they can only hurt themselves.
Appguard, even out-of-the-box settings, should prevent any malware activity that could affect a different user account, because:
1 Even if malware is signed, it won't be able to write to system space, because it first executes in user space.
2 Processes running in one user account cannot interact with processes running in another user account. (This is the principle on which ReHIPS is based, if I am not mistaken.)
Do you agree?
Assuming others are not admins. they don't have your admin password and their account asks for one for elevation and you don't share storage devices then yeah you are pretty much right. Their actions can't really affect you.
Your config is similar to my productivity machine, i just have ReHIPS on top because:
1- i love it.
2- i'm so used to sandboxes, i can't live without them.
3- for beta testing sake.
I have ReHIPS on a different system, which I can keep the noobs away from.
Thanks. Good points. So I need to prevent certain user accounts from accessing my second hard disk, which has storage.
What's the easiest way to do that?
Remove their write permissions or even read for the whole drive. That should solve normal people issues and if you are also running something decent on those machines you are 100% covered.
Yes set the permissions, put UAC at max and your are good.
