    Hi,

    My computer has now more users, each with his own screens and so on.

    If I install PG as an admin should it not run on the other accounts too?

    I'm puzzled! Should I install it for every user? I think not but how can I let PG secure this PC when not in admin mode?

    Hi Frans, Basically Process Guard is an administrative tool.

    Here is Jason's response from another thread:

    You can't run multiple versions of procguard.exe on the same system, and never will be. Simply shutdown procguard.exe in the other user account if you want to use it in another.

    BTW there are certain "issues" with fast user switching that most likely will never be resolved. Any process run in any session other than 0 (the first account logged in) will be allowed to run by the execution protection unless it was specifally blocked always or "block all new and changed files from running" option is enabled.

    Basically, you will not get a confirmation in any other account than the first one you logged into.

    OK, this is good enough for me. I'll just reboot after I was in here.
    That should do the trick!
    As long as PG does it's good job on the other accounts! ;-)

    Thanks

    The RunAs command will let you see and access Process Guard's window while you surf or work as a Limited user. The error message displayed a couple of minutes into to the Limited users login seems to be superfluous and irrelevant.
