    I am wondering,,,,,i have Win 7 installed ! If the user account i use suddenly catches a virus, does that mean the rest of the accounts on this computer are affected too ? I want to use a specific guest account just for experimentation ! I would like to know if tampering with the guest user account would hurt my original user account ? Remind you,,,,,,,the Guest User account will have administrative privilages !

    Some malware affects only the user account, some affect the whole system. It depends, if it's a virus, then most likely it will affect the whole system.
