Greetings to all,
I am running Windows 2000 Pro and I created an extended partition. In that partition, I have a folder with very important accounting information. I logon everytime as a RESTRICTED USER instead of Administrator.
I have an NTFS file system of course. By going to Properties/Security tab, who should I add/remove from the list? I have options here that all of you may want to look at for securing this partition and the folder on whats indise of it.
1. Make MYUSERNAME the only one in Security list and make myself FULL CONTROL.
2. Or, Add the Administrator account as Full Control and then myself as READ-ONLY? Then that would be very inconvenient because eveytime I want to change something I have to log-off and log back in as Administrator..
So what would be the best option for my documents to prevent malware, spyware, or a Trojan to have write access to my data?
In other words, I like to have the closest protection that I can have with my data similar to a Mandatory Access Control on Trusted computer systems.
