I emailed Google but never got a response on this.

I have a machine running win xp home and google desktop. There are a couple of users for that machine. I want the G Desktop running with my main login

However, I don't want it to run for any of the other user accounts on that machine - 1. the other real users rarely use the machine 2. Some of the login accounts are set up for things such as scheduling backups etc.

What is happening now is that if you log into the other user accounts, GD will start indexing. I don't want the processing used and I don't want the files stored. The only way I can stop the indexing currently is to go into task manager and kill the indexing process.

I'd appreciation any ideas

1. Can you set up google desktop to only run on ONE account on a machine?

2. If it has to run on all accounts, what is the best way to disable the indexing so it doesn't always go into the indexing routine when you log into an account.
