I have recently installed Incredimail. It wants to run under all accounts.
My wife uses Outlook Express under her own account, and every time she logs
on, Incredimail asks to to run or if it should be the default client. How do
I restrict this program and/or others to run only on my account. By the way,
I am the administrator account.
Thanx

There are a number of ways that this email client can force itself to run in
another users profile. The simplest is for it to place a shortcut in the All
Users Startup folder, here by default:

C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Start Menu\Programs\Startup

If this does not stop it you will have to start looking at steps such as
editing the registry to remove the autorun entries for this client.

However I would suggest you email the company itself and see if they can
give you and answer before trying these steps.

If they can't provide you with any support I would consider getting rid of
the client altogether!
