No W7 fast user switching must logoff netbook

Specs: Windows 7
Just got a netbook but cannot switch between myself and my wife. Googling this brought up something about gina.dll but that is not in my registry. ???? Thank you most humbly for any help you can offer!

Thanks very much for replying quickly. Unfortunately it turns out Home Premium edition doesn't have gpedit.msc and (I know this one was for Vista but I'm getting desperate) adding the DWORD key HideFastUserSwitching with a value of 1 made no difference so I have now deleted that. Still stuck.

ftr I have learned that there is NO FIX for this in the Starter Edition, that User Switching is just not featured, it is necessary to log off before another user can logon.

There is always 'Anytime Upgrade' so you can change to Home Premium.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
If all else fails, read instructions.
