    How do I DISABLE any and ALL permissions, passwords, user security


    Hello... I am the sole user of my computer running Windows 10 Home.

    Likely these questions have been asked and answered, if so, I apologize in advance, but I did search and try some tutorials to no avail. Perhaps I have ADD/ADHD. I don't care for animations or movement on the screen when I am trying to read something.

    As the sole user of a single machine at home, I want to disable all the security features, login passwords, user controls, permissions, etc.

    I want to automatically login, as Lord Highest Administrator, using a MS Account (if necessary IE for full use of Cortana?)

    I don't want a "local" account or any other account that isn't required.

    I don't want ANY passwords or PINs or other "proof" of who I am. Just LET ME IN.

    I want to have permission to do anything I choose, and never be asked about it.

    When I install a program, I don't want to be asked if it is OK. Just do it.

    When I wish to browse ANY files on ANY drive, I don't want any messages or prompts.

    Is this stuff possible on Windows 10? It seems there would be a "mode" for, say, single users of a single machine with no other devices (phones, tablets, TVs, satellites).

    Please don't tell me to go back to DOS -- it's very tempting though. But like most of us, I'm a sucker for a pretty GUI. No, I have never used a Mac, so I don't know how they compare. I just want full and unfettered access to my own PC and everything on it.

    Now, if these topics have already been covered (I suspect they have), perhaps someone might simply gimme the links to instructions for doing the above. I currently have a MSA account and a "local" account (why, I don't know). The login screen tells me my password is wrong before I've even typed anything. But if I switch to what appears to be the MSA (email address), and enter my password, it logs me in. Other than this, I've changed nothing to do with any of the issues listed above. It's gotten so I honestly can't remember what was the disadvantage of, say, Win 3.1 over this mess?

    Apologies for the rant. I used to know how to do all this stuff. Slip-slidin' away.... Alex.

  3. Windows 10 account

    I have only one local user account.

    Build-in administrator account is disabled in Windows.

    If i need to escalate my permission there is no room for typing password because there is no administrator account (exists only one with user permissions.)

    How to turn on the possibility to write login and admin pass and get administrator permission. Is it possible ? Do I need to reinstall Windows ? : (

    First of all, you seem to be under a misconception. Permissions, and UAC (the thing that asks if you want to do something) are there for two reasons. Only one of them has anything to do with another person having access to your computer.

    The real reason is that when you configure windows to do what you want, that means there is no protection from malware that might try to take over your computer (or worse, encrypt your entire system and attempt to ransom it back to you. this kind of malware is extremely prevalent and you can get it even if you do not visit "bad" sites (lots of malware has come from normal everyday sites like CNN or other normal sites).

    When it asks you if you want to install something, it's doing so to make sure that YOU were the one that actually asked, and not a remote intruder that came along with a flash vulnerability.

    Regardless, you can do what you want with the local administrator account, which you have to enable. However, by doing so you will not be able to use many applications on your system. Any "Universal" apps, such as Edge, Weather, etc will not work in unprotected operating modes like with UAC disabled, or a local administrator.

    *Shock I am aware of malware (sounds like a song...) zero day nasties and the rest... I run real time anti-virus and the paid version of Malwarebytes, which for my level of paranoia, is sufficient. So you seem to be saying it's all there for my protection and cost a fortune to develop. I would like to make my PC easier to use and takes my chances. That admin account sounds restrictive though... ain't there a better way?

  7. Hi:

    Sorry, but neither MBAM Premium nor even the best AV, nor the combination thereof is designed to work on a blatantly unprotected, vulnerable system such as the one you wish to create. These programs are designed to complement the built-in security features of the Windows OS, not to replace them.
    Even the best security applications cannot protect 100% of computers from 100% of malware 100% of the time, especially today's drive-by exploits, ransomware, etc. This is especially true for a user practicing "unsafe hex".

    So, if you proceed with your plan, please be mindful of the very real likelihood that you will eventually become infected.
    The lack of even basic system protections could both worsen the consequences of that infection and complicate the recovery from it.

    It's not a very sound plan and I do not think you'll find anyone here game to endorse it.

    Good luck,
    MM

    *Think Well then how about an alternative plan that, say, comes close to what I want? Automate whatever can be automated so that the computer does the "yes it's really me" part. Goodness, I wasn't talking about publishing my boring life online let alone having to pay someone NOT to. I don't care. That's what external drive images are for, IMHO. OK, I can live with some MS looking over my shoulder if it means no nukes, but c'mon already, there has to be an easier way. Do people really pay "ransom" to get their precious computers back under their control? Guess I've been living under a rock since I retired. I see the headlines, sure, but like most folks, think "That won't happen to me!" So I seem to be inviting disaster... no, that's not it -- just want to simplify without going back to pencils and paper.

    Have you already used the slider in the "User Account Control Settings" control panel to "Never notify"?

    No, that is still on the default setting, one notch down from the top.

    Thank you, but what about this from Mystere: "you will not be able to use many applications on your system. Any "Universal" apps, such as Edge, Weather, etc will not work in unprotected operating modes like with UAC disabled, or a local administrator."

    Am I missing something or does the admin account actually disable certain functions?

    Well yes, some people do pay. Individuals I doubt it, companies doing it is well reported.

    You should also note that if your backup is permanently connected to your system and you do (god forbid it) get all your files encrypted it will encrypt your backup too. When you have made a backup, unplug the drive.

    Forget running as built in administrator - many (and in the future possibly most) programs will not work. This currently includes even what you may think of as trivial things like the Edge browser or the built in Windows Search.

    To do what? I have to allow authority to installers and that is all. Then I look and decide "is this signed by someone" or "do I trust it". Never do I get asked normally.

    If you really don't care you can just grant "Everyone" access to your C:\ drive. This would be a terrible idea for many reasons though.

    Yes. Your recent metro style apps don't work. You can't use Edge, Search, Weather (and in the future probably anything). Windows 10 Built in Administrator is not the same as in XP. Try it, why not?
     
  14. Simply put, if you want to use a system admin account, avoid using Microsoft apps and software, it is user unfriendly.
