    I have a problem where if I try to 'switch user' the welcome user screen just sits there for a minute until it times out and then returns to the main Logon screen where all users are listed. If I log out and log into each user in turn, then it is fine.

    The event viewer does record an error event ID 1036, 'Terminal Server session creation failed. The relevant status code was 0x102'. I have checked that both the Terminal services and Fast User Switching services are started.

    The problem started after a popup infected my computer - symptons included a rogue/phantom iexplorer process. I used 'Anti-Malware' to fix that, but it has not resolved the switch user problem. Please help - I have searched and searched for a solution, and although I have found similar problems there does not seem to be a fix.
