Hey BFK,

I didn't create a password during installation. Should I create one and then is there a utility that will allow me to log on without have to use it every time?

A password is a hindrance unless you need the extra privacy and security.

Hello again.



I feel a password makes the system more secure and I leave UAC at default; were I you, I'd create a password and have a look at the tutorial at the link below.

You guys recommend a firewall program? I use ZA or is Windows good enough?

Should I start a new post for all these many questions coming down the pike as I tweak my new machine?

Also did the "Log on auto".

Use MS Security Essentials with Win7 firewall which work perfectly together.

Avast 5 is the next best freeware choice.
