Hello,

I recently downloaded/installed Super Antispyware on my HP Pavillion PC running Vista Home Premium. The computer has 4 separate accounts, mine, my Wife, and 2 for my kids. I am the Administrator account. Under my settings I can run the program fine, but if I try it under one of the 3 other accounts I get a popup saying all scanning must take place from an administrator account, and will not let me utilize the program from the 3 other accounts.

When I installed it, the program asked if I wanted access only via my account, or for anyone who uses the computer. I checked any users, so that it would run from any other user, but this is not working. I also run AdAware 2007, AVG Anti Spyware, and Spybot S & D, and these are all accessible under all 4 accounts. Super Antispyware just isn't working with the 3 other accounts. Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.....Thanks.

You might want to go into your computer settings. There is an option where only Administrator's can install/change programs. If this is set no other user can access programs like Superantispyware. My dad had our old family computer like this and the only way I could find around it was to make myself the admin. Just a thought feel free to add in.

Well,

It seems Super Antispyware acts differently than the other spyware programs that I currently run on my computer. Vista required me to set all the users to administrator status. Now all users are able to activate/run the program. This is odd, but then again, it is Vista!

I do like Vista so far, and at the very least I have the option to change the user settings as I see fit, since it is MY computer, and I'm not sure the others would know how to change the settings. Thanks for the reply.
