    Default Do i need to scan every user account separately for malware?

    I have three names or username logins on my Windows Vista computer. Do I have to go to each username, update and scan those profiles from within their profile with their own desktop?

    Or can I go into Windows Explorer and scan their user profile folder?



    Or can I just go into my own user profile and that will scan the whole entire computer with all the usernames?

    Hi, Stirwpgp.

    I'm not sure about all anti-malware programs but Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and Super Antispyware will also scan all user accounts, although not the registry of the other standard users. That said, if you are logged on to an administrator account, all user accounts including registry will be scanned.
