I installed SP2 a few days ago and everything looks fine until my wife informed me that she is unable to use her account. From the Welcome screen when you click on her account, the screen goes blue for a second or two and returns back to the Welcome screen. I have no problem when I click on my account.

I tried creating a new account and this new account acts just like my wife's account. (All accounts are setup as Administator.)

Should I disable the firewall feature? (I have another firewall already in place.)

Thanks,

Oh DEFINITELY tell the Windows Firewall that you have another one in place. Go to the Firewall and turn it off and then to the Security Center and tell it that you will monitor it yourself. Otherwise, it gets in your face about it.

If you have a separate A/V, do the same thing at the Security Center about that.

Do it for your account and for your wife's account. Liz

I turned MS Firewall off and things are working again.

Thanks for your help.

I'm glad everything is working again...we probably need to have this one marked solved. So if you go to the little red triangle above your post and tell the moderator that this one is solved, they will mark it that way for you. Liz
