Hello,

  I am setting up a new windows 7 system.  In the past I have had some strange hickups when installing software on windows 7.

Typically I have 1 admin account, and 2 or 3 user accounts.

How should I install software.

I would think if it is something I want all users to have, such as Google Chrome, i install it under Admin.  But when i do this, only admin gets access, and the installer does not ever ask me if I want all user to have access to it.

Do i need to install google on every individual account?

And then If i only want one user to get a program, what do i do different then.

Thanks For Helping me clarify the proper way of doing this.

This link may have the instructions you need. Although I haven't tried it. It should let you install Google Chrome through Pack and this will be the default system-wide:
