Could we please stop using "Zero Day"? It's silly. Doesn't fit
You sir, are an idiot.
Long time ago, I realized I can NOT trust ANY application that asks for root/admin access to my system. My solution was to virtualize the crap into its own virtual machine.
RAM is cheap these days, I have 12GB... Perhaps you could do the same. When you want to use that specific application, you just unpause the virtual machine.
I have actually done the same thing with "Internet". "ALL" my "Internet" is inside a virtual machine and my main PC has no Internet access at all.
Just a suggestion.
*lol* so true! Couldn't have said it better myself.
Hey you only ever told me the score you got while you were bored and distracted.
Take everything in stride. Trample anyone who gets in your way.
