    Default Spybot scan other windows profiles?

    I have searched the forums and not been able to find an answer to this question. When you run Spybot does it scan all Windows profiles or just the one that it is logged in as? If the user is an administrator does this make any difference as to whether it will scan all profiles or not?

    I did see a command line option that said /allhives

    Is this all I need to use to scan all profiles?

    I believe this still holds true.

    It would be best to scan from an administrator account,as I recall.
