User Accounts: Maintenance and Screen Resolution
I'm thinking of creating a second user account for my W7 desktop so that the other user can have her own account while I would have mine (with admin rights). That would allow me to password-protect mine (lots of things in Documents and my Outlook email that I'd like to keep from would-be hackers, etc.).
Two questions immediate entered my mind:
1) We may prefer using different screen resolutions. I already use Resolution Changer on occasion for that on the one shared account we have now, but it needs to be changed manually. I recently came across a site touting "Carroll" (see link below) for storing resolution settings on a per-user basis. Does anyone here know enough about this program to offer a review of reliability, safety, etc. ?
2) When I do maintenance on the computer (Avira AV scans, MBAM scans, defrag, chkdsk, etc.) will all those programs -- or any of them individually -- need to be done for each user account, or will running the scan in my own account cover the other one ?
Thanks for any comments ! :-)
