comment Should application logs be available to admins or just superuser?
You might be mixing application logs and audit logs. Just a thought. AppLogs should be admins, audit is probably super user.

comment Are two anti-virus better than one in protecting your computer?
The answer is not generally. However, I run Windows Defender and Malwarebytes on the same box. Weekly scans using MB, realtime with Defender. Works fine, but most others will fight over things.

@FirstNameLastName a deliberate misspelling of "more". Also a meme, with the same point.

comment Why is windows considered insecure?
Here are a bunch of links over on Ask Ubuntu on the topic of security. askubuntu.com/q/35629/6005, askubuntu.com/q/16178/6005, askubuntu.com/q/6676/6005, askubuntu.com/q/79722/6005, askubuntu.com/q/2271/6005, askubuntu.com/q/30032/6005, askubuntu.com/q/1069/6005, askubuntu.com/q/97667/6005. Basically, it's a whole bunch of MOAR reading. Most of it is useful, some of it is not.

comment Why did I get unresponsive script when I start my system and open web browser?
I'd go a step further and not do a restore from backup unless I can be 150% certain that the backup wasn't compromised as well. Since I rarely can find that out, I would nuke and reinstall from start.
