How do I preform this action?

To restore the default Windows logon interface, remove the following string value from the registry:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon\GinaDLL

If you're trying to restore Fast User Switching try Kelly's Korner.

Restore Fast User Switching - #34 on the left.

As this is a registry edit you should backup the registry first.

Demystifying the Windows Registry
The most important portion of that tutorial is:

Understanding and knowing how to backup the Registry is an important part of keeping your computer secure and running efficiently. It must be stressed that modifying any portion of the Registry should be done with the utmost care as incorrect usage of the Registry could make your computer inoperable.


The Internet is so big, so powerful and pointless that for some people it is a complete substitute for life.

Animal,

Thanks for the heads up there.

I went to my reedit and I don't have this string: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon\GinaDLL

I have everything except the GinaDLL part.

Any other reason I might not be able to switch users. It used to work a couple of months ago.
Can anyone recomend some software or online stuff to check for hacks or viruses or worms or whatever I might have that is throwing my computer out of whack?

I have Symantic anivirus and firewall.
