I am running WIN XP and suddenly my fast switching option for users has quit working. I went into control panel/users and reset the option but still when I try to logoff/switch user I am directed back to welcome screen. Then when I choose another user the screen freezes for about a minute then reverts back to same welcome screen. I can then return to my own desktop ok. If I try hitting Win logo key and L the same thing happens. If I logoff then logoff agai to go to primary welcome screen then I can change user ok.. Any suggestions would be helpful

Hi fenbrook2
--------------------

Sometime you have to stop a Service, then re-start it; so it re-initializes and Windows recognizes the service again ! And a system reboot before and after those actions might help Windows reset!

Don't forget to check the status's of the other services that Fast User Switching Service depends on (shown in attached Jpeg)

Good Luck !!!!!!!!

Log out of each account, restart machine.

One should have ALL accounts logged out when shutting down a machine.

Also, how much Empty disk space do you have on the C drive?
