Another risk of using your computer as an administrator is that it can make it easier for attackers to gain access to your system. If an attacker is able to compromise your administrator account, they will be able to do anything they want on your system, including deleting or modifying files, installing malware, or even taking control of your computer remotely.
So what can you do instead? One option is to create a separate, non-administrator account for your daily use, and only use your administrator account when you need to perform specific tasks that require elevated privileges. This will help to reduce the risks of malware and other attacks, while still giving you the ability to perform administrative tasks when needed.
In summary, using your computer as an administrator can increase the risks of malware and other attacks, and should be avoided whenever possible. By creating a separate, non-administrator account for your daily use and using tools like UAC, you can help to protect your system and your data from these threats.
