:thumbsup: I have a 5 year old HP desktop computer. There are two accounts. When I run the virus scans and spybot should they be run on both accounts? I know there is only one C: but there are files different on both sides.

Can more then one scan be run at the same time? Should the computer be left alone during a virus scan? It takes on some scans up to 4 hours. I never know if I can use the computer during the scan.

If you scan C:, and that's the only drive/partition you have, your scans should take care of all accounts.
Just run one program at a time.
When your scans are running, it's best to leave the computer alone, and don't run any other applications.
To speed up the scanning time, run your scans in Safe Mode:
