    Change the download location to C:\Documents and Settings\Username\Desktop instead of All Users

    No worries. In Tweakui go to My Computer tab and change the location of the desktop folder for each user, so your family won't have to meddle with any settings themselves. Or if you're using a download manager, change the download location in program settings.
