An office mate has a computer that automatically changes users if it sits idle for a few minutes. When the initial page comes up, it only shows one user "him", but after being idle for awhile, it changes to "notHim".

Going to the control panel and looking at users, it only shows two:

"HIM\admin" and "HIM\NOTHIM"

Sounds like a security feature. If he leaves the computer without logging off it blocks someone else from accessing his files etc.

Typed that as slow as I could, hope it was ok. :thumbsup:
