Question about Computers & Internet
I have a Dell Dimension 2400 with an XP operating system. I have two accounts on this computer. Up until a few days ago, I was able to switch from one account to the other simply by clicking on start, log off, and switch user. Suddenly this switching mechanism will no longer function. In order to get into the other account, I have to reboot and go directly to it. Any idea what may have gone wrong?
Windows operating systems often lose vital files which make bits of the operating suddenly faulty. If you have a utility which checks through and repairs these orphan files that may solve the problem. Programs such as Norton Systemworks do this quite well.
I believe that a PC is alot like a car. It's a bit of care and attention and a good service every now and then, otherwise parts start to go faulty and drop off.
A good service every six months is advisable including getting rid of unwanted files and a good disk defragmentation. I just have the operating system and programs on my C drive and when I did my first fresh install, I made an image file of the C drive. Now once a year, I format my C drive and reinstall the system from the image giving me an instant fresh operating system with all my programs already installed.
If repair programs don't work, then do an XP repair with your XP installation disc. Make sure you back up your files first, just in case.
