Now Adaware's got an 'all user' function which as admin on a five user PC is what I need for scanning. However, I cannot seem to find the same function on Spybot, which means logging on to each user (if they are not password protected) to perform a scan.

Any ideas to what I've missed on the config of Spybot?

The entire system is scanned for most malware. However, because of restrictions in the Microsoft APIs (Application Program Interfaces) used by Spybot, the scan from one account does not include the Internet cache or cookies of other accounts

So if you dumped the caches and before scanning with Spybot, sounds like you would get a complete scan.

Also, if you want teatimer activated for all users the instructions are in the link below.

(hmm--I wonder if Ccleaner would clean all users caches in one scan--does anyone know?)

From the CCleaner FAQ:

At the moment CCleaner supports cleaning the current user's account only. This may change in a future release.
