    Privatefirewall stalls on other usre accounts.

    **Please edit title mispelling

    I installed Privatefirewall while logged into the built-in Administrator.

    I have a local user that is set as administrator. I also have a Microsoft Account user that is also set as an administrator. When I log into the real built-in Administrator, everything works perfect.

    When I log into either of the other two users, Privatefirewall launches, but just stalls. The icon is there in my notification area. I can't open it. And I can't exit it. And I'm unable to open Task Manager. It just has a sign on it saying " loading please wait one minute". But it sits there like that forever, and doesn't work.

    Logging back into the main Administrator account, it works smooth and perfectly. If I disable it from Windows startup in msconfig, it doesn't start. Everything works fine when I log into my two user accounts. But even if I launch it within either user account, it causes the same problem.

    I tried uninstalling it from the system. Then installing it from one of the user accounts. Same exact problem. It does the exact same thing regardless of which user I install it from.
