    In the tutorial it says that this will only be set up for "your user account and not all users." So if I am understanding this correctly I will have to repeat this procedure for each user on my PC. Is that correct? Sorry for the noob question, but I just need verification for myself.

    Hello Griff,

    It depends on which option you use.

    Well I printed up the tutorial so that I could initiate it when I build my PC. Haven't had a computer for about 4 years or more. When I get it built I want to be able to go in with guns blazing and have all my ducks in row. As of now its all just research and no practical use just yet.
