    Hi all,

    We've got 4 user accounts set up on our XP Pro machine, but only two of them can ever be logged on at once... when we try a third, it acts like it's gonna load but dumps back to the Welcome screen. We have 1.25 GB of RAM and a 1.6 GHz processor, and it worked before but not now.

    I've noticed other issues... like when we try to logoff sometimes it hangs on "saving your settings" or just displays the desktop wallpaper and forces us to reboot. I am thinking these issues are related. I made a seperate post about this one earlier but never got it resolved.

    Anyone have any ideas???

    There is really no reason to have more than one acct logged in at a time in my thinking. Two, maybe. There really is no reason to have 3 or more. That means you have all start up programs running 3 times. Plus any other programs the individual user has open. With a 1.6 P4 it sounds like you might jsut be running into a barrier. You can put all the memory you want in a slow computer and it won't make it fast.
