Administrator logs off OK. Subsequent non administrator user can't log on as computer crashes after hour glass momentarily appears. Computer crashes. Pressing ctrl/alt/delete has no effect, mouse is still active. Computer has to be switched off/on to clear problem.
In reverse, a non administrative user can log off and then an administrative user can log on ok.
