Is it possible to have ccleaner or any malware detection programs to clean other user accounts existing on my pc, aside from the one under which these programs are run?
When I used CCleaner on admin acct, I saw that the cache / browsing history of firefox on limited acct were not removed.Can I perform cleaning out of these user accts simultaneously or does this mean each user requires each own set of scans ? Thanks

Some tools clean the caches and temp files of all users but CCleaner will only do the current user profile. Malware detection programs however, should scan every last file on your hard drive(s) for traces of, well... malware. :thumbsup:
