    I am trying to set up my computer so that my wife can use it, but not have access to all my files and programs etc...

    I have created her user account, but whenever i try and switch users it hangs at a Red screen, sometimes with a box saying "Applying personal setting Internet Explorer 6".

    What am i doing wrong? Do i have to log my account off first before switching over?

    Well, I think it is because of the available memory on your computer. What are your computer's specs?

    Try logging off your account, and then signing into hers. If it's the first time she's signing in, it can take a long time for all the new user settings to be created.ie. the internet explorer 6 is being installed... leave it alone for like 10-30min and see what happens.
