detected email only showing up in power account
« on: May 04, 2004, 03:50:19 AM »
I have my wife set up on with a limited user account in win XP.
When avast scans an email and finds a virus or something suspicious, it pops up the warning window in my (power user) account.

Does anyone else have this problem and know a way around it or a setup issue?

Without going into specific settings, I would say that when you ran the Avast Email Wizard during setup, you checked "Protect all future accounts".
If so, Avast will look at any new accounts as yours and report results to you.

To correct this, you will need to manually configure Avast for multiple accounts (even though your wife is a limited account) according to the instructions found in the "Menu" under Help.  It really is easy.
