Windows 7: Two "User" Setup ?

Two "User" Setup ?

Hello,

Haven't really played with this yet, but thought I'd ask here first.

I have a radio control program that enables the tuning of the radio from one's PC.
You can also set it up to record a station at a particular time in the future (assuming the PC and radio are on).

There are 2 "Users" on my PC, each with their own unique "stuff".

If my son is on "his side of the PC" and using, is it possible to have "my side" still see the radio and record a program in the future, even though at that time the PC is on his side, and he is using ?

Thanks,
Bob

This would depend how the actual program is set-up to run.

If the program has to be physically open then this would not work , however, if the program is loaded, in the background, at startup of the system rather than user log-on then it may work,

The issue is one of data - the recording information would need to be universally available as well as the program itself,. If the data is loaded for each user on log-in then your planned recording would not be available if you are not logged on.

Account "Roger" appears as "c:\users\user"
Hi all, I recently created a new user account on a win 7 home premium machine before I'd had much experience with win 7 (but years with 2000 and xp). Instead of users\Roger\ it created users\user which I now realise is not correct. (I didn't call my account "user", either, before you ask. :) )...

Permissions for non-system, "user" drives; not "c:"
Would like to not have UAC pop-up for files & folders on non-C: drives, so expect they need to have "full control". Default is Special Permissions. Is there a way to default to "full control" when new folders are created, or do I need to mod permissions for each one? Note that I am NOT talking...
