Hi Everyone,

I know these forums are not specifically designed for Windows problems, but I have had such good experiences in the past, I thought I'd give it a go.

I wanted to switch users a few days ago, but when I clicked the start button and clicked the arrow next to shutdown, it says lock, log off, restart, or sleep. The switch user option used to be at the top.

I have tried going into the registry and finding HideFastUserSwitching, which I had to create a DWORD value for, because it wasn't there - needless to say that didn't work.

I was told to also enable the Fast User Switching service in service.msc, but it wasn't on the list.

I have tried going to task manager and clicking the 'users' tab which miraculously disappeared - replaced by a TCP/IP tab.

I don't know what else to do apart from re-install Windows!

Thanks in advance.
