Without question, you are permitted to install it on three different workstations.

You might also consider using Microsoft Security Essentials - which you could install for free on up to 10 different systems - and get equal or greater protection from malware.

The licenses are for the device - regardless of the number of user accounts.

Further - if you were dual (or triple) booting with XP, Vista, and Windows 7 - you would still be legal. Even with multiple users and multiple OS's, the license is for the actual device.
