Sandboxie and MSE or most any other A/V run from a limited user account is all you will need for the most part.

I have no guest account just owner ... you can run with adminstraor priviliages... is that what you mean? or you mean make guest account and disable adminstraor? all know is there are 3 levels right? Adminstraor , owner and guest right? is there a gen. security thread? I always feel like I just don't understand enough about windows 7

This info should be available on your machine:

Why use a standard user account instead of an administrator account?

The standard account can help protect your computer by preventing users from making changes that affect everyone who uses the computer, such as deleting files that are required for the computer to work. We recommend creating a standard account for each user.

When you are logged on to Windows with a standard account, you can do almost anything that you can do with an administrator account, but if you want to do something that affects other users of the computer, such as installing software or changing security settings, Windows might ask you to provide a password for an administrator account.

The above info is available via a link when you're attempting to add a new user via the "User Accounts" Control Panel item.

The Guest account is installed by default and is typically disabled. Unless you've deleted it, you'll find it by going to "User Accounts".

There is plenty of info provided right there on your machine if you click on help buttons, "?" marks and other helpful links. But even by the time you're ready to move on to a new OS, you'll still be finding yourself running across something in your current version you were previously unaware of, no matter how much you thought you knew about it.
