Windows 7: Internet availability with multiple users sessions

Windows 7 x64 Ultimate
Internet availability with multiple users sessions

The issue is following : a computer with Win7x64 pro is shared between 3 users, each of them having their session. If one is logged on and browses the web and a switch user is done., the second user cannot access the web. Other example if a user browsing leaves the computer for a while, the screen saver logs the session. If another user logs also and attempt to surf the web, the web page is not displayed. What can be the limitation here ? The browser is waterfox, antivirus is mcafeee. THanks for any suggestion

Could you try and duplicate the issue with Firefox and IE?

Actually it turned out to be that the computer was running a trial version of McAfee which by simply upgrading to the full version, solved the problem. Thanks for you idea, i wouldn't though to do the test.

I'd ask for your money back and uninstall that. McAfee, in my opinion, is a joke of antivirus software.

However, I'm glad this was finally resolved.
