    Spybot S&D scans for known malware which installs itself into specific locations. It doesn't scan the whole system, just where it needs to.

    And, if it does happen to be scanning any accounts, it will scan the folder:

    c:\documents and settings\<user names>


    This is where all your profiles for your different accounts are stored

    :)

    Have you thought about trying a scan with Ad-Aware? It scans all accounts and usually finds more baddies than Spybot.

    I highly recommend using both of these side-by-side.

    What account was Spybot installed under? And, do you have rights to view other people's profiles?
