Where should I install my antivirus program of choice (Bitdefender) on my Windows 11 PC? I have an admin account, which I never use, unless I need to make changes to the system.
I use my local user account for all of my activities, web browsing, work, downloading stuff, etc. Never use admin account for this. So where should I install Bitdefender so that its scanning files in my admin account and files I download in my local account?
I would have thought you would install it on the user account, although it may not work without admin permissions (you should still be able to give these permissions from a non-admin account by typing in your admin password)
Why re u using Antimalware program? That’s a malware program, you dumb fuck. It 's probably non free and not FOSS or recommended by FSF. You lock down your machine restrict your freedom for what? A false sense of security?
I installed on admin account, and it scans all files, including the ones in the user account and in admin account. Though I think I could’ve done the same thing if I installed on user account and gave it admin priveleges. Although I installed on admin account, I can still use the antivirus program from the user account.
