Hi

My first post, so I hope I get this right.

We have three users on our system, myself, my wife and "Guest". Just recently, when either my wife or I go to the log off/lock/restart etc menu the "Switch User" option has disappeared. As I am a dumbo on computers etc, I wonder if anyone could help me retrieve the option?

Many thanks in advance

Peter

Please download SystemLook from one of the links below and save it to your Desktop.

  • Double-click SystemLook.exe to run it.
  • Vista users:: Right click on SystemLook.exe, click Run As Administrator
  • Copy the content of the following box into the main textfield:
    :reg
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System
  • Click the Look button to start the scan.
  • When finished, a notepad window will open with the results of the scan. Please post this log in your next reply.
Note: The log can also be found on your Desktop entitled SystemLook.txt
