I just installed windows XP pro SP2 on my computer. it was a clean install on a formatted HD. I set up two user screen names during instalation. After setting up all of the configurations that I wanted in the first desktop I went to log off...switch user and clicked on the second screen name. my computer immediately shut down and rebooted. I logged back in and did the same thing and it happened again. I logged into the second name and tried switching to the first and it did the same thing. Everytime I try to switch users I have the same problem. please help!! The main reason that I installed XP is so that my wife could have her own desktop. thanks.

Hi yodasw16...Welcome to G2G!

Let's see if it's in your settings.

Click Start and then Control Panel. Double click the User Accounts icon. In the User Accounts window, click the link to "Change the way users log on or off"...put a tick in the box next to "Use Fast User Switching" and Apply Options and exit Control Panel.

Restart your machine and try switching users. Let us know how it goes...
