Microsoft anti spyware

I am running a PIII-500, two HDS, 80-13, 256 ram, 56K. Running Win Xp Pro. I have installed Microsofts anti Spyware on two single user machines and they both work fine. I have one other computer that has mutiple users. When I installed the Anti spyware ptrogram on that computer, everytime that one user logs off and another logs on, the spyware program wants to change all of the pertinent date to the prior user. Has any one else come across this problem and if so, is there a fix. Thanks, Viper

I'm not sure what you mean by ''the spyware program wants to change all of the pertinent date to the prior user.'' However, Microsoft released a new version (build 614) of MS Antispyware BETA yesterday (replacing the version released the day before), which fixes a few bugs and extends the ''expiration date'' to December 31st (at which time Beta 2 will be released). Perhaps this will fix the problem.

Hope this helps,

John, to clarify, when a user is changed, the software wants to change the home page, the browser, and a couple of others(can't remember what) to what the previous user had set for their personal settings. I will try the newer version and see if anything has changed. Thanks, Bill
