Question about Microsoft Windows Vista Home Premium Edition for PC
My computer keeps switching users at random times. Its a very weird problem and i think it has something to do with my partitioned hard drive. Because i thought i erased my old user profile when i thought it had a virus, i rebooted from the start and started downloading all my programs, only to find out when i turned on my computer acouple days later, that it was back to the old username i thought i had erased.
It now switches at odd times maybe once every month and it is VERY frustrating, especially with my music files.
A virus can do that if it had managed to aquire your logon and password. If you are sure you got rid of or rulled out a virus you can have a program that is allowed to run as a differant user.
To stop this recreate your old account name but use a different password. The program that is doing this virus or valid will then error out when it next tries to log on and this will now allow you to identify which or what it is. Then you will be able to change it or dlete/uninstall it if needed.
Because this is random you will have to identify the guilty party first. Otherwise you can end up getting rid of the wrong. program.
