Hey guy's

I have a problem. Im running windows xp. And just say im logged onto the computer and quick switch to another user's account and try to log in it will load there account up then freeze. In short i cant have more then 2 user's logged on at the same time. Its annoying as if my sister wants to go on for a second i have to log off and cancel downloads and watever im doing insted of being able to leave them runnnig in the background. I never had this problem until i reinstalled windows then the problem came up after about 3 months.

Im running

Cpu- Amd 3500+
Ram- 1 Gig ddr
Videocard- Xfx 7900gt
Harddrive- 200gig... (96 gig free)

XP user accounts was a good idea in theory but in practice it can cause lock-ups and poor performance if you have more than two -- my son's PC had four (each member of his family) and it was always locking up and struggling to run. Since I persuaded him to have only one account for all his family it runs sweet.
