Windows 7: How to get purchased antimalware to run in user account on startup

How to get purchased antimalware to run in user account on startup

Hello again,
I purchased and installed Malwarebytes anti malware and after recently running into PC 2009 hits, I decided to run it resident. It does on my admin account, but I am unable to figure out how to get it to run under my user account. I have to, see SuperAntispyware thread, stop that and exit which leaves a process still running and then run Antimalware, type admin password and switch it to running resident each time I boot the computer. Any help is greatly appreciated!
Glenn

Is there an option to install it for all users? I'd uninstall it and reinstall it to see. Make sure you've backed up your license key.

I'd also install it under the User account which you regularly use.

Uninstall it removing all traces of it from C: program files 86. If you have CCleaner clean the registry. Then reinstall, turn on protection mode, enter your key to activate. Post back your results.

Can't you just drag Malwarebytes in the Start Menu Startup Folder?

Howdy Greg,
I was afraid that would be the answer. Will do. Dumb question, I initially installed it in the owner account, does it make a difference if I install it in the user accoung?
Thanks for your help!

Hello and thanks for your response. It looks as if that is the way to go! Will do and either beg for more help or profusely thanks everyone for their help!

It should have asked during install if you want to install it for all users. Try looking for that first.

Hello Inifinite,
No I tried that and it won't, so I made a shortcut and put it in the Startup menu. No change! Thanks for your assistance and suggestions!

The best of my memory when I installed MAM PRO the question of all users was during the instillation of the program. I have looked in mine and cant find anything in the already installed program to change that.

It is a strange evening with this software. I uninstalled it with revo and did the CCleaner. I have tried 10 times to log onto the malwarebytes site and download the professional version and I can never connect???? Got a copy of free from CNet and installed it, it had a pro trial period which I let it do and then put in the license info. Don't know if this is correct. I checked auto-protect and make it available for all users.
It starts up as admin, the account I installed it in, but will not start up in my user account?? I am confused. Any other ideas! Thanks
