I have two users myself and my son. I logged on to mine and installed Panda antivirus. I noticed when switching to the next user I don't see Panda loaded in the task bar. Does this mean The second user is not protected? How do you get it loaded for both users? Thanks Bruce

What does Windows Security Center say? If you're not protected, it should be going nuts telling you. If you're both logged on, I don't think Panda loads itself into memory on both accounts... as that would be an unnecessary waste of memory and CPU cycles. Try logging yourself out and then log in with your son's account and see what happens. I'm betting that with fast user switching, Panda won't load itself twice... and that you're still protected because it's running under your account.
