user accounts question

Hi Guys. I have three user accounts on my home computer running xp home. If I defrag or do a disk clean up on one account does it do the others as well. The other accounts are password protected. The hard drive has not been partitioned

To be on the safe side use the Admin account. You can do this while logged in as the user, try the following:

Right-click the program’s file name or shortcut.
Click Advanced, click Run with different credentials, and then click OK. Start the program.
When you receive a prompt, enter an dministrative user ID and password.

If this does not work then always perform this function as the Administrator.

Thanks for the reply. I just want to know if defragging or cleaning up one account automatically did the others.

This really should be done under the Administrators permissions as a user would generally not have the permission to do this. If they have then I would think defragging would do the whole drive and not just one user account.
