Unfortunately there is a bug in Ad-Aware 10. If you want to see that Ad-Aware is running when switching users, you first have to Exit Ad-Aware, switch user and then start Ad-Aware.

To check that Ad-Aware really is protecting the computer even when it isn't visible, you can download (save) eicar.com from http://eicar.org/85-0-Download.html That file is a test file, which isn't malicious at all, but all antivirus manufacturers have agreed upon that their programs shall detect that file. You don't get any pop-up or similar from Ad-Aware, but the file will not be saved on the computer and it will be listed on the quarantine tab of Ad-Aware, if everything is working.
