Do you need local admin rights?

When settings up a user profile on a computer there are many different options and settings to choose from to optimize performance. For many users having local admin rights is a normal part of a profile setup and the risks of having this level of privileges are often overlooked. Why is having admin rights a risk? Well, admin-level privileges essentially give one god-like power when using a computer as any changes you make are automatically approved. If your computer becomes compromised by a hacker they have the ability to make any changes at will. This leads one to question whether or not they always need to have this level of admin rights on their computer profile. The author of the article below goes in-depth with this question as well as provides further insight into the topic.
