Another Off Topic Post but(Solved)
« on: January 25, 2015, 03:20:22 PM »
Up until yesterday I had only one account on my computer which was the Administrator account.  I decided I needed a Standard account so I signed up with another email account.  When I logged on using the new account this am it looks completely different than my Administrator account.  It does show that I have Avast though.  Firefox goes directly to Mozilla.  On my Administrator account I have the Avast Forum as my home page.  I don't remember the password I used to log into the Forum.  Should I continue using the Administrator account or try to figure out how to use the Standard account.

Sorry to be completely off topic but I don't know any other way to get help with this issue.

Thanks in advance for any replies.

Hi -midnight,

You are always best advised to use just one account only.

Cybersecurity is more of an attitude than anything else. Avast Evangelists.

Use NoScript, a limited user account and a virtual machine and be safe(r)!
