S/w like anti virus and spyware removal utilities that each user should run - should I install or remove any of these from the Administrators account instead of each seperate user account?

That didn't make much sense.. can you try to explain what you want to do or what you're asking a little better?

I use adaware at work. If the spyware is to bad I'll just reimage the machine w/ ghost.
For antivirus my site uses symantec AV corprate. All updates, virus scanning, and removal can be done server side.

Nah. Make an account and put it in the admin group and use that for your software maintenance. Use the administrator account for critical tasks.

I have some programs loaded on all users profiles such as my spyware product like spybot or the antivirus like AVG.

If I wish to uninstall it , it seems that I ahve to go into each account and uninstall it as if i uninstall from just onne user it is stil present in the other users acount - so If I went into the Admin account would it uninstall it from all users ?? and therfore is it best to install products//programs like antivirus from the admin accont so that it is present in all users??
