This may be of some help:
Maybe you have the same problem with the fast user switch as I had...
With some research, I was able to solve the problem in my case:
After the user switch from admin-user to guest-user has been done and the screen seems to be locked, I switched back to the admin-user by pressing Windowskey - L ... wait ... wait ... ok, now logged on back as admin-user.
On the screen of the admin-user was a ZL message, saying that the userinit process wants to start explorer, so I confirmed that with "remember". Another message came up asking for some cssrc... access. I confirmed that too with remember.
Thereafter, the logon for the guest-user worked normally, so I restarted the machine and tried the logon viceversa : switch from the guest-user to the admin-user - ok, this direction seems still lead to hang up.
So I toggled back to guest-usr with Windowskey - L and... suprise, surprise, ZASS message for the access of userinit process to start explorer. After reply this again with yes and remember, this direction works now too.
Said with few words:
1. If the switch hangs, maybe you have to go back to the first logged on user to reply to ZL next-user-messages in this state of switch.
2. In this moment, goback is only possible with Windowskey - L
As I thought about, this behaviour may happen after installing windows service without (or even with ?) ZL running, for what reason ever... (changed windows modules lead to re-asking ZL for allowance).
