Facebook login problems

first I suggest you edit you post to delete your user names. These
should not be posted (for your own privacy). You need to log out your husband or any other user.
On the blue header bar of the Facebook page there are a series of icons to the right of "home" ...
Go to the icon on the end that looks like a down arrow.
Click it to reveal a drop-down menu with the "logout" option about 3/4 of the way down the list. Click "logout" and you'll log out the active user (your husband) and you will be taken to a fresh login screen page. Enter your User and Password info to log back into your account.

My camera will not load on my computer, it will on the other user when they are logged onto the computer.

This sounds like when the drivers were installed they were installed with the option of "just this user" instead of all or any users. You can try running the install software again and switch it if it lets you. If not you will need o uninstall it then re install with all users selected. That should get you and everyone else working.

Logging onto server/domain

Have I got this right. You want to prevent them from logging on to a particular pc without a username and password?
If the server is off the domain is not active to validate requests for authentication.
It might help me understand what you are trying to do if you tell me why you want this computer isolated as the solution I am thinking about may not be the right one. Is it in a public area or do you want to prevent guest users or some other reason.
Look forward to your next posting.
