    Thank you @sonylxn for sharing.:) Much of the advice given by those whom have posted I have followed. I hope you will have activated UAC, & 'Default' works fine for me.;)

    A free program called Sandboxie provides protection with Internet Explorer opened & placed inside a sandbox. It is similar to wearing a raincoat over your body to stay dry when it rains. You can download at the link below, + on the right side of the <linked> page (below) find a video & illustrated guides too!

    I do not see a backup & recovery software, it is very important for system integrity in case of crash or bad problems.
    l suggest you Paragon B&R free edition alternative to Windows default backup tool.
    Good security setup
