From My experiance, Ad-ware only cleans up the person who runs it. So if you have two other user accounts, they need to run it also.

If you installed it using it's default location it should be c:\program files\lavasoft\ad-aware 6>ad-aware.exe to find it, then just, signed on as another user right click on the desk-tp, select new>short cut and browse to this location to create a new shortcut for the other users to run.

hope this helps

Ah - the answer is....

While logged in as you - run it..

Then after browse to:

C:\Program Files\Lavasoft\Ad-aware 6
right click on Ad-aware.exe

Run As > The following user...

Enter their username and password, click ok.

And do this for each user.

PS. Saves logging into each one sperately.

What I do is have any cleaning programs, ad-aware, spybot etc in a file on my desktop I then drag them into the 'all users' file, right click start button select 'explore' scroll down tree to 'all users'. This location is available to all other user accounts through the same method. HTH TR
