    Hello,

    I originally installed Acronis ver. 9.0 on my XP Home machine and made it available to only one user. (Myself) Since then I wanted to make it available to another user (My son) ---- in order to save time not having to log out of my son's account and then log back in to my account in order to use Acronis.

    Do I need to uninstall Acronis True Image and reinstall and choose the option to allow multiple users to correct this issue?

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    I have never tried it, I always install for all users - but you could try copying the TI shortcut from :

    C:\Documents and Settings\<your login>\Desktop
    to
    C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Desktop
