    Just installed XP Service Pack 2. Everything seemed fine until I realized that upon bootup, I can only get into 2 of the 5 User Accounts I have set up. After successfully getting into the two of them (and they can vary depending on what I click on first and second), when I click Windows+L to quick switch and I click a third account icon, nothing happens. If I reboot, the cycle will repeat, allowing me to get into the first two accounts I try. If I don't find a solution, I'll wnd up backing out of SP2.

    well the solution is simple uninstall SP2 and wait for SP2a or use the Files and Settings Transfer Wizard on xp and save all the settings for those account, you can then delete those account and re created then and use the files transfer wizard to restore the accounts get the idea ?
