Hi All.

I need a little help.
I have fast user switching enabled - I am not on a domain just network within my house for shared internet connection.
I have been trying to use the fast switching, since reinstalling windows XP media center 2005.

What happens: When I try to log on to an account, the screen flickers and goes back to the welcome screen.
I need to physically log off account before I can access the other account.


Also, windows updates are not working for me - when I try to update some of them, fail automatically.
I have repairs and reinstalled windows a few times now.

Anyone got any suggestions or help?

Thanks
Paulaboo2

Hi there paulaboo2, welcome to BC! :thumbsup:

Try this:

1. Log in as an Administrative User
2. Right Click on My Computer and click on Manage.
3. Under the Computer Managment Window expand System Tools, then expand Event Viewer.
4. Right click on Security and click on Properties.
5. Under "When Maximum log size is reached" select "Overwrite Events as Needed".

Now check whether you can switch users. If not, proceed to the next step, which is:


1. Log in as an Administrative User
2. Right Click on My Computer and click on Manage.
3. Under the Computer Management Window expand Services and Applications, then expand Services
4. Look for "Terminal Service". Right click on it and open its Properties.
5. In the Terminal Services Properties window, make sure that the "startup Type" is set to "Automatic".
6. Reboot

Now check whether you can switch users.

If the above doesn't work, then double check that:
1. You haven't disabled any network connections
2. You have the latest drivers for your video card.
