Windows7 and ext4?

Hello! Wife after long tossing between SPO and photoshop and asked for the laptop to put Windows. And I year 2012 happened Windows just watch the movie, flexing and read the news. I have since left the OEM drive with Win7x64 sample 2010 in my opinion and activator (like year in 2014 still working). The problem is that after installing Win on my notebook remains HDD c polterabayta different data type, photos, videos, documents (partly in .odt) and all this in ext4. I know from personal experience that if you need work some document to bring or file, then stick it is better in NTFS format ext4 because my home computer did not see. Now googled that there is such a thing as Ext2Fsd - it will enable after Windows is installed data on the HDD in ext4 to work?
PS dogonku about security to ask. Avast-and free enough now to online to pay and public services to use? And while Ubuntu was standing I didn't worry much - the wife the password Ruta never remember could not, and now we again have to go through to start because she will be doing...

Yes. At most it's worth. At the next exacerbation of work in all sorts of virtualcad and Linux in General - very helpful.

Avast-and free enough now

It was never enough. And anyway, no one antivirus is not enough. Just as Linux is not a panacea!

Put origin uBlock + uMatrix + Unchecky and verbal ban on launch of files of letters from the tax, prosecution, administration of the President of Angola and other debris.
Join Ext2FS perhaps the only easy way. But sometimes you Win because of it crash or hangs, it happens.
And as the mailer not to use Outlook Express AMI-AMI, which has so many holes found... - Scottie commented on March 23rd 20 at 19:40

Yes. But if working with them will be done exclusively on Windows, I would recommend to move on NTFS it is much easier and more functional.

Enough free built-in antivirus from Microsoft, avast is no worse and no better, except more annoying.

And while Ubuntu was standing I didn't worry much - the wife the password Ruta never remember could not
Long time you with Windows is not addressed.
In this regard, Windows is not very different from Ubuntu. If you do not work under the admin, everything will be fine, even without antivirus. And to work under uchetku with admin rights there is an analogue of sudo called UAC.

If you want to make everything very safe - install all the necessary proven program, and set the policy restriction and NTFS permissions. As a result, the user loses the ability to run any portable applications that are installed initially.

AdBlock in the browser and the DNS filter on your router or third-party service minimises the advertising and attempted attacks via the browser.

In General, that windows security is little different from Ubuntu.

In no case do not put Avast!
I used it for many years, and all this time he slowly pushed in...
Now he's big like adware\pup than antivirus. He will find you (although you didn't ask) a bunch of "vulnerability" and explain to you why you should pay money for the full version.

Use regular antivirus win, unchecky, and head. Perhaps periodicheskaya check normal Antimalware, although personal feelings on this is now almost irrelevant. If you really want third party, I can recommend the free comodo with a firewall, but it is not necessary.

terrabit

Interesting etymology of this word...
Last year I recommend and put kaspersky free. Relatively lightweight and not overloaded with unnecessary functions. I do not use antivirus, performance is more important - Miles_Batz commented on March 23rd 20 at 19:44
@Miles_Batz, I can't imagine a situation in which I would set myself on PC software from the people, firmly associated with the secret services - I see no reason to relieve them of their hard work. A regular AV Windows performance zamentno not affected. - Destiney_Sipes commented on March 23rd 20 at 19:47
@Destiney_Sipes, people who have something to hide from intelligence agencies, used more serious measures of security than antivirus, and questions on the toaster don't ask - Miles_Batz commented on March 23rd 20 at 19:50
@Miles_Batz,
people who have something to hide from intelligence services

Everyone has something to hide from others, but they are not always aware of this. While roasted rooster does not bite.
And asking all sorts of people. All generalizations are false. - Destiney_Sipes commented on March 23rd 20 at 19:53
