Found these suggestions on various sites, and would like to hear opinions on this:
1. Always sign-on as 'user' and not 'administrator'.
2. Use hardware firewall (router with NAT/SPI) in addition to software firewall.
3. Employ virtual manager (like 'Sandboxie').
4. Use download blockers (like Faronics 'Anti-Executable' or 'DeepFreeze', in conjunction with '1 Click&Lock').
5. Replace IE & Firefox with secure browsers (like Doogle, ArmorSurf, OEMBrowser, etc.).
Think any of this would improve security?
