    Hey Everyone!

    Ok, so two weeks ago, the temp IT guy came and messed with my computer. Before there were two "admin" users on the log in screen: myself and another person.

    All of a sudden I get on the computer and I realize that the temp changed both accounts to limited. After logging on to the "hidden" admin account, I changed my account back to "admin" and kept the other one limited. However, now I don't have the option to "switch users"

    I have literally tried everything and visited a bunch of forums with no luck! When I go into control panal and under user accounts, and try to click on the fast user switching button, and hit apply, it doesn't save the changes i made.

    I have checked the computer services and both the terminal and fast user switching are running an on automatic. However, still not able to switch!

    Please help! I have been going crazy for the past 2 weeks trying to figure this out!

    Sorry, we generally do not assist users circumventing or changing settings imposed by in house techs, you'll have to contact the IT guy if you wish to change any settings. If the IT guy changed it he may have changed it for a valid reason. Closing thread.
