Switching user RRS feed

  • Question

  • We have multiple users on our computer. At one time we could "switch user", now we have to "log off".  We have not changed any command lines or anything, it just stopped letting us "switch user".

  • I don't mean to sound like an idiot, but I've never heard of "Active Directory Setup". What is it?  I have tried to do the user acounts thing but it just reverts back.     The value of MSGINA.DLL should be null, I have learned, but if we clear it out, it still won't work. We could switch user at one time.
