    Well i can't switch user it just cancels and doesn't do anything. I go to control panel and Fast User Switching is off, but i try to trun it on... i press Apply Option and i go back to it and its off again. I was tweaking the computer earlier and i think i by accidently messed up the the registry or turned off a service.

    kalv did you check in Services to see if Fast User Switching is turned on? Read the following http://www.kellys-korner-xp.com/xp_abc.htm it may help get FUS back up again scroll down to Allow Fast User Switching.

    In services its set at Automatic, but not turned on. I try to start it, but it says "Could not start the Fast User Switching Compatibility service on Local Computer. Error 1068: The dependency service or group failed to start." I went to ur link and found Allowed Fast User Switching, but AllowMultipleTSSessions is already enabled.

    Are you saying you want to automatically login? If this is the case there are a few ways you can accomplish this http://windowsxp.mvps.org/Autologon.htm. BTW, are you having problems going to microsoft website only are you having trouble with other sites also?

    Windows Files Corrupted

    Do a system restore BEFORE you did the tweaking
