My woman and I use the same WinXP computer with different profiles (both running as Admins). How can we access an application that's running on the other's desktop? (More inside)

I find that if she logs on first in the morning, the firewall (the free Sybase one
) shows up on her desktop, but not on mine. If, later, on my own desktop, I run a networked application that the firewall is unfamiliar with, it simply won't work; if I haven't had my coffee yet, I won't be able to figure out why.
This isn't a firewall question — She'd also like to be able to skip They Might Be Giants songs when Foobar2000
is running from my desktop.
(Is this also a problem on other OSs? 'Cause it seems like it would be.)
