Upgraded from Windows 98SE but if and when I install anything it ends up in:
C:\Documents and Settings\All Users when it should be seen and used from my
own area/folder. I am the only user as well!
Any ideas, suggestions??

If you're the only user, what do you care? ;-)

i agree. it would be great if EVERY app was multi-user aware and asked if
you like to install for the current user or all users. having different
user profile's is great, but sometimes ........
