Hi Guys.
I have recently introduced 4 new user profiles to my PC, it will usually log into the first user with out a problem but if I try to switch users or log out and back in as someone else Explorer doesnt seem to finish loading.
It just seems to freeze with no icons in the task bar.
If I bring up task Manager it says 33 running process but only 4 are visable :thumbsup: Explorer.exe is included in the 4 but it will not end task and if I try to run Explorer.exe again nothing happens.
So I try to log off through Task manager and I just get a black screen and have to do a hard shutdown.

I have run all my maleware programs
sfc /scannow
and chkdsk
Can you think of anything else i can try
BTW I am just recovering from a backdoor Trojan, all clean now thanks to Buddy in the antivirus forum.
would there be temp files or services running that shouldnt be left behind by the trojan ?

Thanks for any advice

OK dont worry Guys, I know it was a strange problem, maybe my PC just isnt powerfull enough to handle more than 1 user, so I have now deleted the other log in names, it was just too much of a headache.
Now I am just left with my name there.
Now, how do I get into my account without having to click on my name (hope yopu know what I mean)
I just want the pc to boot to my desktop like it used to without me clicking on my name.
Thanks.

:inlove: Click start.
:trumpet: Go to Control Panel.
:flowers: In Control Panel, click User Accounts.
:cool: Click on your user.
:) Click on Remove My Password.
:thumbsup: Type in your current password then click apply.
:P This should work the next time you start your computer, but remember it will only work if your the MAIN administrator on the computer.
:) Turn off the guest user account.
