What you observe is normal, expected behaviour. As an administrator,
you can put files that have to be available to all users into drive:
\documents and settings\all users\application data\... For example
during installation. Users without admin rights can save preferences
files in drive:\documents and settings\ username\application data\...
I'd use two different files, one in ...\all users\... and another one
in ...\username\... for different purposes.
