    Hit to all, this is something that I've racked my brains over for a while, and no doubt something that will be answered within minuets!

    There is 2 user accounts on this PC. I am the administrator, the other account is named "guest". The problem i'm having is when signed on as admin, I installed Kaspersky Labs anti virus. All works well - however, when I (or anybody else) signs on as guest, Kaspersky doesn't seem to work! I tried simply dragging the program folder into shared docs, but that didn't work either! Can anyone put me out of my misery and tell me how to install a program that will work on ALL user accounts, and begin on start-up?

    Thanks in advance to all that respond! (y)

    Hi there, thanks for your time.
    As administrator i can right-click on a file and select "scan with Kaspersky" and as guest when selected nothing happens! Also when i log on as admin, the red K logo is in the system tray...and as guest its not!

    what you want to do is first copy a shortcut to the program and while in the admin account go to start > all programs > startup >and past a shortcut there... try restarting your computer and see if it works. if it doesnt we can try another thing, just let me know.

    S4baz - thanks for the reply. Tried as you said, but no luck. It makes no difference in the guest account, but when i sign back on to admin, Kaspersky opens its window.
