    We use Windows XP - Home Edition. My husband, children and myself all log on separately. When I run spybot or adaware to find & clean up spyware, must it be run under each separate user? Seems like I run it while I'm logged in, then I can log in as my husband and it still finds more items. I'm assuming it checks only certain files & subdirectories specific to the user you are logged in as? So does it require each person to log in and run spybot/adaware to completely clean up the computer?

    Running it under any account with full administrative privileges should check everything on the drive.
