When I created more than one account in XP, the preference are often shared with the other users (for example, I prefer to use this antivirus but the other person prefers that; but when I uncheck one, the other user will also hav the same effect). So, did anyone knows how do I fix this? Im on SP 2 btw

with system programs such as antivirus software...you can't make this decision per user....it's a system wide decision...

if this is your personal home computer...then you need to decide which AV program to use...if this is a company computer...then your company needs an AV policy to controll this decision...boils down to: whoever owns the computer decides which AV to use
