    I've got three accounts set up: 1 as administrator, one as standard and
    one guest.

    UAC is on for all of them. I've been trying to install some software to
    the standard account ONLY. I've tried from the standard account and from
    administrator. I only want that software on the standard account NOT on
    the admin.

    How do I do that????

    Similarly there is software that I use that I only want showing up in
    the Admin account NOT on the standard one.

    Is there some deep config thing I need to do? Also, is there a way I
    can keep UAC on for the standard and guest but NOT for admin?

    Please help, I'm at my wits end.....

    I've made a change. Set up an admin account and both my wife and m
    account are standard. Is there a way to pick and choose which softwar
    gets installed where? (ex from the admin install half life 2 to min
    only and pampered chef only to hers.)

    yes, when you install the software it'll ask you if its to be installed for
    you or all users

    Ah so its the installer program. IF it doesn't ask then it just goes t
    all accounts. Gotcha. Funny, here's hoping MS puts something in the nex
    release that will ask you if the installer program doesn't. Thanks Andy
    That was a very frustrating couple of hours

    Not necessarily. Up to date well written installation programs should ask.
    If they don't the program may either install for all users or the current
    user depending how it was programmed.
