Fast User Switching no longer working

June 14, 2009 at 23:38:45
Specs: Windows XP
Everything has worked fine for years.

Using XP Home with two users.

Now, when I click Start>Log Off>Switch User, I get taken to the welcome screen. If I click the other username the welcome screen vanishes as if it is logging in, but immediately jumps back to the welcome screen. If I fully log out, I can then change user.

I have checked the error log and it shows a termservice error and also something about being unable to undump the users profile or something? Can't recall the exact words now.

I have googled and found many others with similar issues, but none of the fixes seem to work.

Any ideas on how to sort this? It is really bugging me now!

Thanks!

Some programs that you may have installee could disable that feature.

"Best Practices", Event viewer, host file, perfmon, antivirus, anti-spyware, Live CD's, backups, are in my top 10
