I'm running Windows XP Home Edition with SP2, and I set it with 5 different user accounts (all of them are administrators). The problem is, every time I try to run some programs (like Norton Antivirus) from an account other than the one in which it was installed, I get about 3-4 consecutive messeges that say "Preparing for installation" and I have to click "Cancell" in all of the in order to get the program to start. After this, the program works just fine, but its really annoying (and also, Norton is taking ages to run on startup, which I think may be related to this somehow). What can I do???
PS: I've already run Ad-Aware, Spybot Search and Destroy, Spyware Doctor, HiJack This, and Registry Mechanic, all of them updated, so don't associate the startup slowness with any of those problems. And I'm certain I do not have any viruses either.
