    Do downloads stop when you change between accounts?


    Hi guys! Just a quick, stupid question,

    Do downloads (in the browser, in the torrent client, etc.) stop when you change between user accounts?

    Probably gets suspended or paused -- my guess is: browser working for acct A no longer works for acct A once acct B is activated. I think downloads resume once acct A gets back into action. That's how my W7 works.
