Toad 9.1 installer creates the menu shortcut files for Toad.exe under C:\Documents and Settings\<user name>\Start Menu\Programs\Quest Software folder and creates the menu shortcut files for KnowledgeXpert.exe under C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Start Menu\Programs\Quest Software folde . Hence, if a different user has installed Toad, then the shortcut files will be created under the user name path of the person that installed Toad, and when a different user logs onto the machine the shortcut files are not found.
After Toad has been installed, transfer Toad.exe short cut files to the 'user name' path of the user that will using Toad or transfer the files to the 'All Users' path.
