    on this computer, when me and others that use this computer hit "switch users" 1/4 of the time it wont let us switch users It takes us to the main screen where the names are and u have to put in the password but once we put the password in, it says password invalid even though the password is correct.

    So we ususally reboot the computer and then the password always works. It never says invalid password from a boot up. Only during the usage when we change users.

    Ive changed passwords for all users but still the same problem. It been doing this for awhile and at first we dealt with it, but now its just an annoyance.

    What could be wrong with switch users that would affect the password. ???
